Camino Day 2 on the Via de la Plata (VdlP). A lovely walk in open countryside from Santiponce to Guillena that reminded me of the Meseta on the Camino Frances crossing the infamous Arroyo and rather a big lunch at the end of the day. I think most people walk from Seville to Guillena on the first day, but I wanted to ease into this Camino slowly.

Just 12 kms today, as I need to start out slow and steady due to ongoing knee and foot issues.

Much of the day was a long straight dirt road.  Stretching into the distance.  There was little shade.  But I love this expansive landscapes and that huge sky.  Other than a few local cyclists I only saw two other Pilgrims as I got close to Guillena.   I stayed on the Hostal Frances in Guillena.  Really just a bar with a few rooms above, but it was very comfortable with nice hosts.

And I managed to find a nice restaurant just down the road and ate far too much!
