Ribadiso: Our Last Day

15 October 2019

It’s another rainy day and it’s feeling like fall.

We’ve gotten used to candlelight breakfasts.

This is the main dorm. It has three levels. After we get the straglers moving, we usually do the pre-cleaning by removing debris and sweeping. It usually takes between 15-30 minutes.

We said goodbye to Maricarmen.

Farmer Alfonso is finally fixing the fence so the cows can’t escape.

We spent a couple hours cleaning the cottage and washing linens and towels. Thankful there was is a washer & dryer here.

We stopped next door at Meson Rural to say goodbye to our friends. Sylvania poured a Gin & Tonika.

A toast to Ribadiso!

Even little Chisco came by to say goodbye.

This is Lolo our cab driver for the past two weeks. He said next time we return we need to speak more Spanish and he will learn more English. He gave us a ride to the bus stop in Arzua. From there we took the bus to Santiago where it was raining hard. We had a few hours to kill at the bus depot before catching our all-night ride to Madrid. From Madrid we fly to Boston and then to Minneapolis and back to reality.

It’s been an awesome five week adventure in Spain. Meeting and sharing so many experiences with people from all over the world has been enriching, enlightening and inspirational. It’s time to head home now but I have a feeling Jane will be in Spain again.

Adios Amigoes!

  1. I hate goodbyes, but it sounds like it is meant to be again in the future. Such a wonderful adventure, it it is so different to become part of a community when you are in another country and not a tourist. Safe travels and hope the transition back to your “other life” is a smooth one.
