The path here leads down to a ski station called Formigal. It was a delighful area I descended at quite a fast pace with my Spanish companions. I don’t usually walk that fast but you are carried with a group momentum. I told Danielle about my plans and he said “You are strong walker” and I replied no, no, very slow and mimed it in action. “Slow but strong!” he insisted. He was a lovely chap, and I suppose there is some truth in that but concerning determination not physical ability. Did I tell you about the time, after a long rough Pyrenees descent and enveloping exhaustion, then lost, how I was determined to climb back up the hill and almost collapsed?
