I’ve been walking for 3.5 hours but still have about 3-4 hours to go before I reach Pamplona (I think?). I’m taking a quick coffee & potty break in a village called Zariain at a little cafe beside the river.
This guy must have heard that I’m not much of a cat person, though he reminds me a lot of the late, great Mina Cat (who left us two days before my rescue Springer baby Seamus passed on — terrible weekend for the household pets). The kitten is sweet and really into eating bread! Weirdo.
He’s almost as cool as Fritz who stayed in the albergue with us last night. Fritz and I communed quite a bit, and he seemed to be asking me with his eyes “why did my mom drag me out here?”
I will update more on the walk today when I have Wi-Fi later, but in the meantime, my big city shopping list for tonight:
- A sweatshirt or hoodie to replace my one “item ditch” mistake
- Compression sleeve for my ankle (yes I wrote too soon the other day)
- Wireless earbuds because I’ve had enough of this tangled mess —
Oh, the rain has started again. I need to swaddle myself in plastic and get going again.
