We are in a town called Belorado or something like that. Last night we were in a place called Grinon and stayed in a parish albegue. The sleeping living area was up in the bell tower of the church. We were given mattress that we layed on the floor and put our sleeping bags on. The washing machine was almost directly below the bells!! We got to go to a pilgrim´s mass and then we had a communal dinner. They had almost a full house and it was all very nice. Alberto from Italy was the Hospitalero and David from Canada (Vancouver) came in to relieve him. While were eating the winds and rain started and kept up all night. It was a nice day today, but the winds were a killer. We must of had something like 30 mph head winds making walking terrible. We did 10 miles today and decided to call it quits. We think that today with the second day crossing from Valcarlos to Roncevalles is the hardest we´ve had. I am starting to get a blister and am doing my best to to keep it at bay, but it is difficult. Last night there was this one Spaniard who what terrible blisters, about four to each foot. He was planning to do 30 k´s today. I am sure he will do it too, as he passed us about four miles out of Grinon. We are sitting in a bar now drinking a bit of wine deciding whether to stay or push on.
