    I've been online lot, beside reading. Found WALES2WIN with a video of a male choir form Pendyrus singing "Bring Him Back". Can't figure out right now how to post a link. Hauntingly beautiful!

    Something terrible happened to me on the camino today

    I lived in snow country - mostly western New York state, but one year in Moose Jaw Saskatchewan. Will be really happy if I never see another snowflake except in photos. This is not what I would have wanted for a Camino. You are taking it very well!

    Where to buy a Fado/Portuguese Guitar
