Logroño to Najera

This day started off oddly with the closing of our house falling through. Janine handled it well and we had planned for this unlikely contingency - leaving the house in order for further showings. She talked to our realtor as we wound our way out of this sizeable town.
Today was one of the longest days on the Camino - 18 miles - and we wisely sent our packs ahead by a shuttle service - we were happy when we found them at our end destination.
My ankle continues to be a concern - definitely sprained. I go between a 1 and a 4 on the 10 point pain scale. My back is also having some spasms - so that adds to the fun. Good day to let someone else ferry our packs.

Probably the highlight of the day was striking up a conversation with a young Korean Mom who was trying to find a new path for herself. She had just sold her school and WA trying to figure out what to do next. The Koreans are big walkers and evidently the movie "The Way" was a big hit there - about 8 Koreans are in our daily cohort of hikers. I think all of them were staying in our Algergue this evening.
