After a quick flight from Paris yesterday I arrived in Biarritz and got the shuttle up to St. Jean Pied de Port where I stayed last night. Had a pleasant afternoon exploring the town, had a nice Basque lunch and went to Mass for the feast of the Nativity of the Mother of God. After Mass the priest gave a blessing to all the pilgrims. If was especially nice praying in a church that other pilgrims have prayed in for over 800 years!
The hostel where I stayed served a very nice dinner and I met quite a few new friends.
Praying for you all! Please pray for me too!
