Day 4: Friday May 23 & Saturday May 24: Barcelos to Ponte de Lima

Today we left Portugal and entered Spain.  In reality, at the conclusion of the walk we returned to Barcelos where Michelle was just hanging out in her cast.  While in Barcelos, she was are fully attended to by the family owners of the pensión where we where staining: they even had a wheelchair for her to use.  This was a beautiful day until the outskirts of Porriño where we encountered an industrial area infused with toxic smells.  I immediately had an allergic reaction (burning rash on my legs) and we called it quits for the day.  Nonetheless, lots of gentle hills and wide variety of flowers as well as the usual churches in each village we passed.
