Logrono – stay or move on

In our original plan we had targeted to stay an extra night of rest and sight seeing for Logrono. We arrived fairly early and decided to see Logrono in the late afternoon. We saw couple of wedding going around the churches.

We sat at the plaza and had wonderful kabobs from a Pakistani store sitting with an Irish pilgrim who has been walking for 10 weeks talking about culture and spirituality. From there we went around and finally saw the town alive.

Logrono is a beautiful town and we all decided worth another visit someday. Since the next day was Sunday we all agreed to move on our journey but make it a short day by only traveling leisurely 14km and getting up late.

We left our alberge around 8:30.

Our next stop was the church built in honor of St. Francis of Assisi. It was built by the man who was healed by the Saint as he travelled through Logrono on his pilgrimage of Camino.

We read the Prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi (which happens to be already in this web under the joy and the city tab)

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

We are all feeling the transformation of the body, mind, and soul as we have already travelled over 109 miles.

We finally came across a good pastry shop to celebrate our successful completion of stage 2. Now, on to stage 3 that takes us to Burgos our the next week.

We continued our walk through the town onto the beautiful park that goes on for miles.

Some one had commented that as an official photographer and blogger there were not enough pictures of me so I decided to take a selfie (my style).

Today felt like a day of fun and easy walking until the early afternoon when it got hot.

As we approached the town of Navarette this sign greeted us. It is hard to fathom that we have already walked over 225 km.

The natives are getting restless and hungry for dinner as they wait for me to complete the post.

We have a nice room today without any bunk beds and a room to ourselves.
