I just laughed out loud! Thank you for that! A greenie is coughed up from the depths of a persons bronchial passages and lungs.There was a time that a person could be fined for this. Doing this in a public sitting area is very low class behaviour!
Find a quiet place to sit. I recall sitting at a lovely cafe for breakfast and someone had cut their toenails. Vomit. Another time I sat on a rock in the shade after a huge climb only to discover that someone had left "greenies" and my feet were in them. Puke! Buen Camino!
I had a very intelligent elder make a comment that the significance of the pilgrimage is diminished because so many are doing it. Like it was nothing to walk across Northern Spain for 5 weeks with a heavy pack on your back. Hmmmmmmmm. The older I become the less enchanted I am with others...
I have my trusty John Brierley guide book. I am trying to book albergues from Canada and my e-mails are not being returned. Is calling better?
I would appreciate any tips or suggestions.
