And a little exhausted, I´ve run into a festival here which may make my run into town for fruit a little hard.

St Juan de la peña was absolutely amazing (indescribably so really), and it gave me a short day walking into Arres which was ridiculously overcrowded but very friendly (it was set up by the same person who set up Grañon and it shows in the friendliness of everyone there).

The next day I walked on to Ruesta which is a very clean, modern albergue set amongst the ruins of a town. Very atmospheric!

The scenery here is like walking on the moon, all grey granite mounds of odd shapes.

The weather is perfect, hot but with enough breeze not to drive me crazy.

In two or three days I will hit the Camino Frances and I´m sort of afraid of the crowds, I´ve gotten used to the occasional empty room in a Refugio.

Hope everyone at home is doing ok.

The fiesta in Sangüesa is fun-- if you are there this evening, they will do the running of the bulls in the form of a man carrying a metal bull structure emitting fireworks, and chasing a hundred shrieking adolescents. Worth the walk.

If you can go by the Foz de Lumbier tomorrow, do so. It's a few extra hours but worth the effort.

Glad you enjoyed San Juan de la P.
