    wow less then 2 wks from now..

    looking for "A Pilgrim's Guide to the Camino de Santiago"

    I thought I'd try to see if anyone have a copy of "A Pilgrim's Guide to the Camino de Santiago" (the St. Jean to Santiago) to share?? It would be fairly neat to use a book that someone has taken to the Camino before :D Please let me know. BTW i live in Rockville, Maryland USA :)
