Walking towards Najera

We started at 7:30 and by 9:30 stopped for breakfast.  Lovely croissants with cafe con leche and zumo de naranja.  

Friends found: Irish-German we watched soccer with in Pamplona, met a Turkish-German woman called Sashi, and other British couples.

Najera has a -yes- church that's very large & impressive, a monastery.  Cold as death, dedicated to death perhaps: several kings' tombs and crypt.  I imagined monks chanting at 4:00 a.m. Walking slowly with torches... 

We had a pilgrims dinner.  First time the wine was poor. The trout good. If to the Puerta de Najera albergue for shower & resting/sleeping.  My brother may look for a tv to watch Roysl Madrid vs some German team.
