Quick breakfast at the café across the monastery with a double stage ahead. I decided to take the road as the path was surely a river of mud by now. And so began the longest day under the pouring rain.

 

A milestone was officially reached; I could feel the anticipation and the excitement of reaching Rome in the next few days. Lunch consisted of a ham and cheese sandwich, OJ and coffee at a café facing the 100 km to Rome gates in the town of Montefiascone.

 

Everything was wet from head to toe. Surprisingly enough the camera survived this time around. I left town still under the pouring rain, an hour later, resigned to my fate.

The path got muddier and slipperier as the day progressed. A thermal bath came out of nowhere, and I took advantage that it is free for pilgrims. All you have to do is show them your passport.

 

Thanks to Alain Martinez donation I stayed at a pretty cool looking B&B. After a quick trip to the laundromat to wash and especially dry all my clothes, I went to a pizzeria with a one-hour waiting list to devour the biggest pizza of my life.
