Leaving in the early morning, I was again struck by the beauty of this village.
The girls in my group are in much better shape than I am. They were down the hill and ready to go way ahead of me!
and they smoked me on the road!
At the crossroads, Linda and I took the road. I had a much more difficult time walking this year than ever before, having not had time for any training (and the spare tire around my middle!)
I arrived at Orisson some time after them. We had hours to spare before the taxi arrived and spent the morning no and early afternoon eating soup and drinking beers!
At 2 pm the taxi FINALLY arrived - and we shuttled down the mountain. 2.5 hours up and 8 minutes down!
We had an hour to wait for our Gite to open.
Tomorrow we will shuttle up to Orisson and continue our walk to Roncesvalles.
