Back on the trail - note our Camino angels at lower right walking ahead of us. Each morning begins with a prayer then - close by our albergue - a place to get our cafe con leche y tostada. When we first started - Arlene only wanted coffee which in Spain would be espresso - a small coffee maybe one ounce of liquid - I convinced her to get her coffee with more volume - so cafe con leche - a latte - about 8 ounces along with toast. It was very important that we consumed lots of liquid during the day. We were carrying about 2 liters of water in our back packs but whenever possible we stopped and had more coffee or a Coke. She wanted diet and again I insisted that there was no nutritional benefit in a diet drink and had her drink the regular Coke. Spending six to eight hours a day walking meant we needed lots of liquid to keep us hydrated as well as carbohydrates to fuel our muscles. The bread in Spain was some of the best bread we ever ate - no preservatives - so breakfast - cafe con leche y tostada. On the Camino we learned that there were two breakfasts - #1 the simple latte and toast - #2 more cafe con leche and perhaps eggs and more.
On Camino our days filled with dozens of prayers - Rosary - Chaplets - intercessions for those back home - those in need. In Lent - in addition to scheduled prayers - always open to stop and pray on a moments notice as we learn of other's needs. We are prayer warriors for all.
Logrono was our stopping place for this day. After showering and getting into dry clothes - time to do some sightseeing - some vino tinto y tapas before dinner.
