This morning brought a steady soaking rain. Somewhat to our surprise, none of our 28 peregrinos complained as they suited up in rain jackets and pack covers or ponchos and prepared to dive into the wetness. We suppose they recognize that walking in the rain is part of the Camino. As one German woman put it, ¨I don´t get to take long walks in the rain when I am at home, and I find that I rather enjoy it.¨ Despite the good words, we are happy enough to be spending this day inside.
