Zubiri, May 16
It was a short walk from Roncesvalles to Zubiri today, but by the time I got here just before 3 p.m. I was ready to stop. Rain all morning. Continued cold, but sun out now. I am in a 6 Euro per night albergue -- bare bones -- but I feel like a real pilgrim and it was satisfying to be able to pass many on the route today, through mud, rocks, and up and down hills. I will look for a place I can spend a couple of nights in Pamplona while I make the rest of my travel arrangements. I may go to San Sebastian to get to Barcelona, so I will need to check with travel people or tourist office in Pamplona tomorrow. I don´t know if I´ll connect with Steven and Lisa again. We did exchange text messages on Anja´s phone yesterday, but I don´t know where Anja is tonight. I may look into getting a Spanish phone for when I come back. There is snow on the mountains all around, but I walked through beautifiul beech trees that still had red tinges to them.
