    A left turn

    For a few days I have tried to walk the Chemin Saint Jacques from Strasbourg, but due to the difficulty finding any Abbeye, etc, willing to accept pelerin, I was forced, unhappily, to stay in too many Hotels. Obviously this costs more so I lost my nerve at Colmar. Now I'm heading east into...
