Puente la Reina's five arched bridge. This town is on the route to Santiago. While we were there, three weary travellers were crossing it.
Day 4-Haro.

Today, 27 degrees, Pamplona, 82 miles. Walked the famous rout of the bull fiesta-Encierro- where 6 bulls are released each morning to run the cobbled streets of the old town. Graham was most upset that he'd got the date wrong, as he'd planned to push me out in front of the bulls.....one way of getting the weight off I suppose!! sampled a local dish for lunch, lamb Navarra, a lamb casserole.....let's just say, I think the lamb must have been chased all around Pamplona....no meat left on it!

On journey back to base , stopped at a pretty village, Puenta la Reina, on route to Santiago de Compostela, which has a five arched bridge-several pilgrims were walking the route! Also saw storks nesting on the spires of a church. See photos on Facebook.

Last day at Haro tomorrow and Graham needs a rest from driving.
