This song went through my head many times today as we walked the 21km to Zubiri. The sun was shining and the mud paths were clear. Great walking weather…fresh in the morning and pleasant in the afternoon. Also only 5hrs walking and mostly downhill.
We found out that 195 pilgrims slept in Roncesvalles last night. Luckily the hostel can hold 300 souls and sleep came easily to us all.
We are quite a community now and are recognizing many pilgrims as we drift forward and backward on the way.
Today we are staying in Zubiri which is the town before the suggested stop on the Brierley guide, so we will miss a few faces but meet new ones as others are continuing on. Five hours was enough for us today. We are easing our bodies into a rhythm and are listening to them scream….enough already!
