Pamplona to St Jean
We all went our own way - I met Isa at the bus station at 10am and spent the day with her. Isa and I worked together as hospitaleras at San Roque albergue in Corcubion (on the route to Finisterre) in 2009 and have lkept in touch all this time. Isa can't speak English and my Spanish is rudimentary so we used Spanglish, hand signals and a dictionary to converse. We found two outdoor shops in Calle Mayor that sell the Altus raincoats for 35 euro - and another around the corner that sells them for 39 euro.
Most of the group met in the square for dinner and then we had an early night.
The pension Sarasate is spotlessly clean, has comfortable beds, wifi, tv, and ensuite bathrooms - 45 euro dble and 35 single.
We are now sitting in the sun in the park waiting for others to come down so that we can go to breakfast then we'll walk down to the bus station where Express Bouricott will collect us to take us to St Jean.
