We've noticed our feet have been swollen at the end of each day, but by morning they have returned to normal and we've been ready to hit the trail. This morning was a different story. I realized that my blister was not healing, despite the attention several days ago from the “handsome young Spaniard.” No wonder I was so slow yesterday! The toe looks and feels horrid!
Fearing infection, Reg and I headed to our next stop (Burgos) by taxi. Our amazingly helpful driver took us to the emergency room (where we expected to spend several hours), walked us in and explained my predicament. Thirty minutes later I was bandaged, given instructions and a prescription for antibiotics and we were done!
A couple days of rest and I hope to be back on the road…perhaps a bus or two will keep me on track.
I would prescribe a rest and a G&T. Put your feet up. Malcolm.
