Day 7

Walked from Los Arcos to Viana. 19.5 km.

Woke up early but had to stay in bed as we were requested not to start packing before 6:0 am.
Breakfast at the hostel was so. So. But we went to sleep last nite with guitar music and a very soft female voice singing, where does that happen if not on the Camino.
Left the hostel at 7 am. And had the most beautiful walk so far. The wildflowers are incredible as you can see on the pictures. There were some steep sections but is was dry and windy.
Arrived in Viana at 12:30 and the auberge is new with very nice washrooms, 4 beds to a room and a big terrace from our room.
Today is my last day with Karli and Martha as they will take the bus from Logrono back to St. Jean.
I will miss them but am confident to continue solo.
Today I went and bought a proper rain cape that fits over my backpack. My left ankle is a little swollen "overuse" but the blisters are gone.
Thank you all for the good wishes and posts, that is the first thing we look for when we get internet
Hugs to all
The 3 (last time) pilgrims.

  7. Greti, I once read long ago that some of the basques in northern Spain make there own guitars and play them in the evenings. Maybe that is what you had witnessed?
