    My plans are to arrive in Seville on April 22, 2009. I will be a few days behind y'all. I have five friends from my 2007 walk (Camino Frances) being pulled to walk VdlP at this same time. We all walk different paces, and daily kilometers, but manage to catch up with each other every few days...
