VIA FRANCIGENA | Day 6

Bruay-la-Buissiere to Arras, 33.8 km

One minute update

 

Full episode

 

Overslept two hours on a 35 km day.

Another day spent walking under the relentless sun, the clear skies, and the gentle breeze. Where it not for my umbrella, I will be a couple of shades darker. Navigated a few obstacles on the road and interacted with the local dogs. Followed a few more signs and I passed a few more world war one memorials and cemeteries.

Feet are doing great, bandages and all. No luck finding an open church but the flowers in the area keep the spirits up. I started pushing the trolley to take advance of a beach umbrella with an articulating hand.

Lunch came and went at a stone fence as I recharged my batteries and dried some clothes.

The few businesses in rural towns are closed, but the cows show me the way to a set of stones right out of local fork lord. Massive ally cemeteries cover the countryside.

Thanks to John Stevens’ donation I settled in in a modest room at the Maison Diocesaine. I took a shower and soon called it a night.
