I have now been introduced to a new concept. Natalie insists that every Friday is Fancy Friday. So she picks flowers along the way to put on our packs to fancy us up a bit. Being more of a casual Friday kind of guy, I am still getting used to the idea, but I do play along. Might as well, otherwise it is just another plain ole day on the trail. I must admit, it is starting to grow on me.
Today was one of the most peaceful walks I can remember. We headed out of León and things just got quieter by the hour. Until we were walking down these deserted country roads, ambling through these really peaceful little towns. We stopped at every chance to have tea and snacks since it was a short day. I was told there would come a time when this way of living would become totally natural. I think that day has arrived. Aaaahhhhhh!
