On the Camino one thing that has really struck me is how much people offer other people their food. If you pull up to talk to somebody and they are munching on something they will almost always offer you some of it. This carries over into the albergues when somebody is cooking a meal, they will insist you eat some. I guess this kinds goes against my stingy nature. When I only have a few of something I really like, I tend to hoard it. So I am practicing out here giving away what I like the best. I am finding that it feels really good and I had a realization today. I just need to use less of what I like so I can give away more. Wow, what a concept!
Today was about as long as yesterday but there was. Really stiff headwind and it was a bit chilly, so it was a bit more taxing. The scenery opened up quite a bit and we could see way off into the distance into rolling hills. We went through 4 small towns along the way, so it never seemed long before we hit the next town. We stopped in most of them to munch on the amazing bread and cookies we got in the bakery from heaven. In one of them the church was open so we went in and prayed and lit some candles. We got in plenty early to miss the big storms that rolled in around 4. Nice to have a roof over our head tonight. I am very grateful.
