Messages Along the Way

It is hard to describe the messages that I see everyday. I will start posting a few here and so you can get a flavor of them. They are in every language imaginable let’s just say they are meaningful, and uplifting for the most part. Sometimes they jump out at you and sometimes i almost walk by them until somebody points them out to me. Some, like the Dont Shit sign a few posts back become Camino legend, as in “did you see that one!?” But they certainly add to the day, as I stop often to see if I can get the message, if you know what I mean.

Today was our first day to walk with no towns for a break. So we set out with water in hand and a massive amount of food so we could “survive”. We had one of the largest picnics yet and it was a delightful day. The weather was perfect! Tonight we are in a town called Manzilla de las Mulas. It is a kinda Abilene meets Spain kind of town. But tomorrow is the big city Leon where guilty pleasures are in store.
