There were very few websites and no blogs 10 years ago when I started researching the camino.
There were also different characters on the camino 10 years ago. On this pilgrim's blog they had to go to the private home of Madame Debril, a harrigan of St Jean, feared by all pilgrims starting out!

I loved the Maori morning call (on the first page):
He po, he po
He ao, he ao.
Takiri mai te ata, korihi te manu,
Ka ao, ka ao, ka awatea!
Papaki tu ana te tai ki te reinga,
Ka ao, ka ao, ka ao te ra!

It is night, it is night,
But it is day, it is day.
The morning is breaking, the bird is singing,
Behold the day, the day, the dawn!
The sea laps against the departing place of spirits,
Behold the day, the day, the risen sun!
