Still here. My cough is much better. Susan went to the doctor today and also has her pills for the next few days. Again we have a “mysterious ways” event. Had we stayed in Zariquiegui that first night, we would have gone over the mountains in blinding snow the next morning. We were better off with the struggle over on the first day. Now in Estella, had I gone to the doctor right off, Susan would still have gotten sick but we would be hiking and not near a Centro de Salud as good as Estella.
So we just had a nice bottle of wine with cheese, honey and bread and are waiting for the restaurant to open its kitchen at 7. In the morning we expect to roll off to Los Arcos. The magic fountain at Irache is the first landmark. www.irache.com
