We took a zero day today which was a good decision. The morning was wet with constant drizzling rain. We watched other Pilgrims leave on foot & on bikes while we enjoyed a leisurely breakfast.
Chores were done & some sight seeing taken in. Shops over here are so different. Mostly everything was shut besides a few cafes all morning, there was hardly people about until midday when shops started opening. Even then a lot of shops were closed all day compared to how busy yesterday was when we arrived.
We had our last meal in Pamplona & the place was finally coming alive with people & live percussion bands marching through. Derek spotted our German Pilgrim friends Jo & Sigrid, that had arrived today, & they joined us for dinner. It was like meeting up with old friends & we were excited to see each other again. We had a lovely meal with a few too many vino’s under the belt – I had to direct a “very happy” Mr D back home & not land us in a cell for the night as police gave him a “serious look” as we walked past.
So, all organised to hit the track tomorrow & walk back out in the beautiful countryside. I still have a cough but have picked up oral cough medicine – information all in Spanish so I have no idea what it is I’m taking, but trusting the Spanish lady that picked it out for me!
