I made my way by bus back to Vitoria, but this time I am staying in the albergue which is brand new, modern, huge, clean and only 10 Euros a night.
Today was the outdoor market so I took a stroll to see what vendors are selling today.

And yes, you will see in one of the pictures that the meat is of TORO – not cow, but bull. Not surprising at all.

Jean’s birthday celebration

DSC00487

May 3rd was Jean’s birthday. We planned a nice evening dinner together but first we had a 22.5 km trek to complete.
We left Vitoria and headed towards our end destination of Puebla de Arganzon.

We stopped for lunch and celebrated Jean’s birthday with wine and chocolate. We also took the time to have a short nap before a 300 m climb and a 500 m descent.

Once we arrived and unpacked, we headed to the local bar for a pilgrim dinner and another celebration of Jean’s birthday. We all had a great time!

Due to the day’s descent, I am faced once again with a non-walk day to let my knee get better. Team Nestor left this am and I will take the bus back to Vitoria then tommorrow rejoin them at their location. I am really happy we were all together for Jean’s special day!
