A few km further we came across a wayside camper selling drinks and snacks. Pilgrims are always grateful to see these 'informal' cafes especially on long sections between towns and villages.
I walked into Najera with Jeff and Connie and Marion was there to show us the way to the Hotel Hispano where I had stayed last year. Anna was behind the desk, her sister was there with her two children and her father was cleaning cutlery in the kitchen. Our luggage was in the foyer so I took out the little gifts I had brought for Anna, her parents and her sister's children. I received hugs all round!
