Tues. JULY 17TH
long day ... we began at 7 am and walked 11 miles to Pamploma.  The hills were shorter, sometimes along the highway but mostly gravel paths.  We got lost in the outskirts of Pamplona, but after stopping at a pharmacy we were soon back on track and arrived at 2 pm.  We are in a religious albergue that can hold a couple of hundred pilgrims I think.  It's only 9 euro per bed and that includes a fresh sheet (linen...not paper) plus a pillow.  A real bargain on the camino.
Were making friends from around the world.  Jenn is out this evening with an  Irish girl and many of us are leaving tomorrow in the dark together.  Six of us went to the 7 PM mass tonight in a  church build in the 12th. Century.  Earlier this afternoon Jenn and I toured the Cathedral that is less than a block away. Dinner was homemade sheeps cheese and dried ham freshly sliced on yesterdays french bread.  We'd finished our choc bars during our walk today.
  Heading to bed soon.  Weather was very warm today, lots of sunburned pilgrims.   Buen Camino
