... mostly in Spanish though the bishop welcomed visitors in French, English and Italian and an Irish priest spoke a few words. The main bishop (there were 2) spoke (we presume a sermon or homily) without any notes for 15-20 minutes. Impressive. As well as the organ there were a few other instruments and a good cantor who led the singing accompanied by the organ, etc. and sometimes sang a Capella. Before the ...
... decided to continue. In less than a couple kilometers, we spotted a restaurant that had rooms, A Concha, in Lavacolla. It was a simple place and the woman, Lucia, was very welcoming. The French couple, Gwenolyn and Thierry, were there, too. We enjoyed a beer on the patio, dinner, showers, then bed for a 4:30am departure.

... we heard a peculiar clicking sound behind us. Who was it, but Military Training Guy!!! And he was with Angel/Caterpillar Maria. MTG had a big smile and warm hugs for us despite rarely having spoken to us, but Caterpillar Maria hadn't a clue who we were, despite having climbed down a mountain with us!!! Aw, I love them all and will miss them dearly. MTG wanted a photo, and so did we, and we wished everyone a good life and Buen Camino for wherever it takes us now. The rest of the ...
