Hola! So good news, the fever is down and I am feeling much better. My feet however still are festering a bit and I was in no mood to lace up the boots. So I decided to follow my doctor’s orders and take ONE more day off. Tomorrow, I start walking again!

I think the people of Logroño–and La Rioja as a whole–are among some of the nicest people I have ever met in Spain. Everywhere I went around town, the locals would stop to say “buen Camino!” or ask how I was doing. And when they would see my bandages and notice my limp, they seemed generally concerned for me. It felt great to be among people who cared!
