DAY 11: September 3 Viana to Logrono (10 km – thats right just 10!
We sleep in a wee bit as today we have a lovely short walk—a stroll really. This day we leave the Navarre area and enter the Rioja area. Much of the time we are paralleling the main road with all the traffic noise. Also, to reach the historic part of Logrono we must first walk through a large industrial area. The time is short and even the industrial area is interesting to us. Along the way a fellow pilgrim has generously set up a tapas and wine stop for us. The Rioja wine is ice cold and delicious. We offer a donation but she does not wish payment. Another random act of kindness.
We check into our hotel early afternoon, get our laundry organized and go out to see the town. It is nice to have a lazy day:-) Later we wander to a street renowned for pintxos for our supper. We run into two Canadians from Timmins whom we had met back in Estelle. It is nice to cross paths with them again.
