I’ve been lightening my pack all day, ounce by ounce. Sorry this had been such a theme the last couple of days, but I’m the girl who drives around with a car as my closet. I slung on the pack and walked through St Jean this afternoon, and saw this fine pilgrim. The medieval pilgrims traveled with a staff, a cloak, and a gourd for water. No high-tech fibers for them! But they walked the same streets of St.Jean, and the Camino. Tomorrow morning I’m off to Orisson, my first stop.

Love the pic of the pilgrim with his Middle Ages man-purse (AKA scrip), he’s got that Egyptian-style frontal+side+3/4-view and such flat feet, poor guy… Great shot of you and Hale. Many fond memories from seeing the UC EAP luggage tag…Eurail passes and all our adventures. Now you’re about to make so many new great ones, Go Beth!
I do remember your Hemingway fixation and your “pilgrimage” to La Closerie des Lilas soon after we first got to Paris in 1978! Glad it’s not the Festival of San Fermine there in Pamplona, so you’ll not be tempted to try running with the bulls… 😉 women do also run now.
Hope to meet your “Natty-Dreads” Jesus doll some day, sounds great!
