    Powder shampoo - this looks like it would be great for the Camino

    I figured I was only out $5 if I didn’t get. I received a confirmation right away and within 30 minutes I received an email saying it had shipped. Hope it is as good as their service.

    Sleeping in a dorm room where there's someone with a CPAP

    My husband uses a CPAP and it makes no noise at all. When he first started using it I was awake all night checking to see if he was breathing because I was so used to hearing him breathe. So much better than the snoring.

    Thanks for keeping us up to date. Just don't know what is correct anymore. Are you allowed out and about in Santiago now? It seems that you were much more restricted than where I live in the US. Stay healthy.

    Footwear advice

    I had the same problem with them. I will admit my walking is very hard on any shoe I wear. I have found that Brook's shoes seem to last thru a whole Camino. 4 done and was leaving in Sept but who knows now.

    COVID Santo Domingo de la Calzada Suffering

    Very sad to read, especially to see how high their death rate is. Such a beautiful place to stop and explore. They say they will be back and wonderful to hear they are ringing the bell twice a day.

    COVID Cherish the elders

    I was amazed at how the younger family members took their elders out to the plazas every afternoon and evening. They just had such a happy look on their faces as they sat in the sun.

    Travel from Lisbon to Porto in September

    The train ride from Porto was beautiful. Also the walk from the Cathedral down to the river is shirt and simple. I found the walk out of Porto along the river to the sea beautiful.
