    A few words from me today (July 27th 2020)

    Yes Ivar we are watching from Australia, reading the updates each day, my camino from Porto cancelled in May. I send many good wishes and thoughts to Portugal and Spain, and hope our borders are open by October next year so I can finish my via de la Plata as planned. Keep safe everyone.
