Day 2: Roncesvalles to Zubiri

Becky and two Spanish women from Mallorca.

Mark on the way to Zubiri with his backpack carrying the shell, typical pilgrimage symbol along the Camino.

Menu del Peregrino (Pilgrim´s meal) pork, potatoes, salad, soup, rellenos, wine, water, and good company from Spain, Canada, Switzerland, and Finland.

Day two found us walking towards the industrial town of Zubiri.  We walked alongside many of the same people we had met the previous day.  It rained for the first few hours but we were so blessed by complete sunshine the day before so we weren´t complaining.
We met Harold who is 80 years old and is hiking the Camino for the 7th time.  Some other interesting characters include Alfonso who spoke of pre-Franco Spain and his affinity for interesting Spanish toasts.  (some not appropriate for blogging :)
One Spanish family is traveling in a group of 6 and they have made for some very lively conversations.
