I cannot tell a lie. After two exhausting days of hiking, I decided to skip this leg and take a cab to Markina. I still have not been able to get a solid night’s sleep, which isn’t helping. So, being 65 years old, I know my limits. I enjoyed a relaxing day around Markina and took a long nap in the afternoon. I woke up refreshed and ready to walk to town for some dinner. And I met this fine young lady!
First cat I’ve seen since I got here! And she’s a beautiful calico, like my dear sweet Clara! She was friendly and sweet and didn’t care that I don’t speak Spanish.
