"As I walked in the very strong sun, I prayed in thanksgiving for this chance to be a pilgrim". (David Gibson, from Ultreia! Onward.)
Another amazing day. Highlights were the approach to a hilltop town (Cirauqui) as well as seeing fields of red poppies. I have walked two days without sunglasses because I lost them in Pamplona. Finally in a larger center now
Yesterday we had a wonderful pilgrim's dinner. Usually they are cheap and spartan. This was a banquet laid out for us. Fish, meat, lasagna, salads (have not had a vegetable for a week now), scoop your own icecream (three flavours), beer and wine. All for 13 Euros. We all went nuts over this. There is definitely a spiritual element here!
We are hanging around now for our 8 PM dinner. It's basically eat and then sleep.
