Pamplona to Zariquiegui

You have to love the new location name....I'm pretty good at "sounding out" words but gave up on this town name.... You try....

The excitement today as we arrived at this Pilgrim Hostal/ Alburgue in Zariquiegui (where we decided to stay the night ) was a camera crew waiting for an ultra marathon runner who is "running" the Camino as a fund raiser for St Jude's Children's Hospital in The Dominican Republic!

The cinematographer originally from Venezuela but now U.S. Citizen in Miami Florida knew all about and loved Cary's company of J.L. Fisher, Inc.

He loved Mariah and I being  Grannies on Camino and wanted our blog page. We saw the runner come in and he introduced us ... A loving and gracious gal who is running for a specific child each day to raise money for these very ill children who come from ultra poor families in the Dominican Republic. ( see photos)

It was a hot walk today with some hills and wide open beautiful spaces. We re-connected w/ some pilgrim friends, met new ones..seems you have to be some kind of a character to walk/run the Camino! Hmmm!

Love to all...Mary


  1. Leave it to Mary to find a crew that knows J. L. Fisher, Inc. So glad you’re having such a good time.

  2. Pics are awesome, way to find the six degrees of separation in another country. Who knows Kevin bacon?
