And so it begins..

Camino Notes


The Feast of Saint Francis of Assisi. The gospel remind us to have faith.  After a long flight arrived in Paris near noon. The economic situation in Europe shows in  the lack of upkeep of Charles De Gaul airport. Rough flight to Madrid...turbulence big time. Lost a kilo of weight in sweat. Took the train to Salamanca and will pass thigh Avila; tomorrow a trip to the tomb of the great Doctor of the Church, St. Teresa of Avila. What a city! One of the most famous universities in the world is here and the best example of Romanesque architecture.  Found our bikes in three boxes waiting to be assembled.  A late dinner of tapas-assorted sausage (blood sausage-yes), potato/ham "crocettas", cheeses, bread and some good wine.   Tomorrow we explore the cathedrals and environs, then Buen Camino! And go Bobcats! I have FAITH!
