San Fermin

6/7

We had a day descending from Roncesvals to Zubiri. Limor's backpack's back system broke above the left shoulder. It was hard for her and we arrived to the Albegues late. Since there was only one bed left, we took a room in a pension nearby. It was not expensive at all.

We've met two American guys, one I think was in the marines or something, whom walked from Orisson (near St. Jean) to Zubiri in one day! (42 km)


7/7

We started late because our laundry was still wet and we suffered from bad cranks.

Limor almost went back home, but decided to give it a second chance. We've arrived to Arre just near to Pamplona.


8/7

We spent most of the day in Pamplona, Watching the festival. I've missed the bull run, but I might go tomorrow with a guy from Mexico. The festival was very nice, lots of drunk people, and everybody is dressed in white with red bandannas and scarfs. After enjoying the fiesta, we walked just outside of Pamplona to Cizur Minor. We've met a nice Mexican guy named Dago. He's very useful since he speaks good Spanish and English.

9/7

I went with Dago early in the morning to Pamplona by bus to see the bull run. I managed to find a place right at the front of the second barrier (as close as you can get without actually running or being an organizer). It was very short, but very exciting. I took a video of the run, but It´s hard to see the bulls 'cause they're surrounded by people. But if you look closely in slow motion, you´ll find them.

I caught up with Limor and we walked a decent 22 km to Puente la Riena, cooked dinner with Dago and met another Israeli couple on the road, Orna and Noam.

10/7

It´s a really hot day. Walked only 13 km. Hope will start earlier tomorrow and walk more.

מצטער לשמוע שלימור ירדה מהשביל באסטיה. מקווה שהיא מרגישה יותר טוב עכשיו.
אתה בטח הגעת היום או אתמול לליאון. אנחנו הגענו לפני שלושה ימים לסגון (Sahagun) ומשם לקחנו רכבת לליאון, וירדנו מהשביל. הספיקו לנו שבועיים. הנופים מבורגוס לליאון היו מאוד לא משהו, אפילו שהבנתי שאחרי ליאון המצב משתפר.
תהנה בהמשך הדרך.
