We hooked up with the rest of the group--18 in all, and made our first stop to Roncevalles first stop for pilgrims coming over the mountains from France, and scene of the largelly legendary Song of Roland, when Charlemagnes troops were defeated by the "Saracens", actually irate Christian ciitizens of Pamploma who he had mistreated. You may remember having to read this classic work of early medieval history in a college class.
After a very long and bumpy ride through very scenic countryside, we finally arrived at out stop for the next two nights, the medieval hill town of Sos Del Rey. We hare now having a short rest before dinner--8 PM is the earliest one can eat in Spain!
