I got to walk with more wonderful peregrinos today. Beautiful people from Kentucky, Colm, a recent transplant from Ireland, and Tessa.
As the weather continues to be near perfect for walking through the wooded trails of today’s Camino, I found myself in wonderful accommodations this evening. It’s actually about 10 km from the trail. The owner, a very nice lady, picked me up in Aruza and brought me to her “hotel” of maybe six rooms. I miss socializing with other pilgrims this evening – there is only one other couple here so far – but a quiet evening is kind of nice!
The owner and I had a few laughs trying to communicate, each of us using Google Translate. There is a nice grape arbor, dogs, chickens (Maybe one is dinner!) and a rooster crowing. And good local wine of course.
Lesson for today: Be surprised and delighted by the unexpected. Life’s an adventure, each moment to be cherished!
Ben Camino everyone,
