Trakking with the Cows

Trekking with the Cows

Day 34 –  100 km to Santiago ! Sarria is the last place you can walk from and receive your Compostella (100 km’ s). The number of those waking have really grown today. I think those days of solitary trekking are behind us. Seeing all the people and the excitement in the air adds to today’s magic on the Camino .

Today I walked in honor of my good friends.  You know who you are; you have been my confidants, inspiration and playmates.  I could not have made it without you.  Family and friends are what life is all about.

I also walked in honor of great leaders who have inspired me and the world; Martin Luther King, Churchhill , Mandela and Kennedy.

Yoday we talked about the soul.  You know sometimes when you look someone in the eyes, it seems you can see all the way into their soul.  What is the soul?  How does it work?  How long does it last?  One lifetime?  Forever?  I guess this is the question for the ages.

On a serious note, today we also ran with the Cows.  As we were walking, twice we had to thread our way through small herds of Cows on the Camino as we made our trek to Portomarin a town with links to the Knights of Saint John.

At the end of the day we were rewarded with the best Albergue deal on the Camino.  A private room with bath overlooking a lake for $20 euros.  About $28

57.7 miles to Saniago.

Really? We have to finish the day going up these stairs?
