I only walked ten miles today, which was enough to get me into old town Pamplona. Got in about 11 am and was lucky to find an inexpensive but nice pension. After sleeping in one room with 60 other pilgrims last night, the privacy will be welcome. It is raining now (8 pm) but hope it will clear tomorrow. It drizzled a little during today's walk.
Some pilgrims seem intent on getting out and covering as much ground as possible without looking around. I am glad I was able to visit the cathedral, other churches, and the Museo Navarre today. This is very much Basque country and there was even a small demonstration in front of the auntamiento (city hall) today.
There is not an Internet café to be found anymore. Tonight I resorted to stealing the unsecured wifi signal outside a fancy hotel!
