FIRST: Please note: The internet opportunities on this Camino are very infrequent so far, so no, I have not died, but though I’m writing on my Word docs, loading pics onto iPhoto, etc., I am unable to post frequently thus far, as I did two years ago on the Camino Frances.
I just began this post and had several paragraphs written, and everything disappeared. I’m sure it was operator error, but after a very hard day of walking (though easier for the most part than the past two days.) I decided I just want to go to bed, give my feet a rest, my back and neck, my arms, my entire body, which feel as though they have all been beaten with rocks and brilliant sun, two days of 95+ temperatures, accompanied by as many as 500 steps in the first couple of hours each day. Yes, 500. Oh, and today, a thunderstorm in the midst of walking for four hours on huge stones and dirt, making the road to Yankee Boy Basin look (and feel) as though it is flat pavement.
So I promise I will catch up with myself, and will make notes before I go to sleep. But here are two photos from the first couple of days. More later this week . . . thanks for following.
