Summer camp in Avila: Day 2


The bus journey yesterday was longer than I had expected. We stopped at an inn around midnight to have a drink and stretch our legs. The plan was to stay there for 5 to 10 minutes and then continue. However, once outside the bus, the fresh air and the space were too big a temptation for us. We ended up leaving at 1 a.m.
Later we arrived at the end of the journey around 2, only to find out that we still needed to walk a big deal in the darkness on a path that was full of bats and, surprisingly, cows. And, of course, it was dark. So dark, that hardly anybody could find their lamps, except for those of us (including me) who had been intelligent enough to look for them in the bus.
Once we arrived at the camping site, we still had to get the tents ready. After all this messy process we finally went to bed (sleeping bag, actually) around 4.30 a.m.
