El Burgo Ranero to Leon

My walk today was in a word LONG…
 
 basically I had two choices. One walk an easy 18k roughly 11 miles which would be done before 10:30am so I would just hang out and sit around or walk 37k about 23 miles and arrive in Leon at around 2:30.
 
 I really like Leon so I choose the latter and just put my head down and walked. Arrived around 2:15pm. Checked into the Benedictine albergue. When I arrived I ask done of the volunteers if he could help me find a dentist to fix my broken tooth. His name is Miguel and he as a totally amazing man. H found a clinic and went with my by taxi there. Unfortunately it was closed, so he called several other places to try and get me in. Even though I could not get it done since it was Saturday Miguel went above and beyond.
 
 I will have to wait until Monday to get my tooth repaired.
 
 I was able to go to mass at the cathedral of Leon at 6pm tonight it was very nice. I met this lady from Sacramento after mass. Her name is Tomasina turns out she is Carlos Brusells wife/longtime partner. Small world.
 
 The albergue is very busy. All of the beds are full. There are over 100 beds. We had a nice pilgrims meal for dinner and then went to the church with the Benedictine sisters for evening prayer and pilgrims blessing. Then off to bed.
 
 Tomorrow I will check in to a hotel and enjoy a rest day.
 
 Happy Mothers Day Baby.
