    I have one. I took a video of him doing it. I will look through my photos and vids and try to pin point the location.

    Planning to walk from Astorga solo, advice please!

    LEUKOTAPE is amazing. It will literally stay on for days and is not bothered by sweat or showers. I used it on the ball of my feet and around the edges of my heels.

    Cathedral Noon Mass July 25

    Today’s Mass at the Cathedral with the Royal Family in attendance and botafumeiro at the end. The young man who does the first reading is one of the staff members at the Pilgrim Office. I believe his name is Santiago (Santi). I worked with him both times that I was there.
