Left Santiago this morning and hiked 12-13 miles to Negreira, Spain. I was told the next 20 miles is desolate, so will do that 20 tomorrow. The sunrise is looking back towards the Cathedral. The last few days I’ve hiked through areas where the trees are shedding their bark. I don’t recognize the species. Any help out there from woodsmen?








The odd-shaped grocery item is cheese. Spain is divided into areas much like our states. The area I’ve been in for the last week is called Galicia. Years ago they erected a statue of a woman. The Bishop complained the breasts were too big on the statue. As a thumb to nose towards the Bishop, the local Galician cheese makers started making cheese in the shape of breasts. They are an ornery bunch. I don’t make the news, I just report it. Just keeping you abreast of the happenings in Spain.
