Astérix hikes into Pamplona

2020 Camino Guides
Camino(s) past & future
Accompanied by Obelix 💪, both approaching Pamplona in July and aching to enjoy the spectacular festival.
Fond memories from his brilliant and unique illustrations ❤, also from my arrival in Pamplona and my stay there for a couple of days before the patron saint’s day.
Sad news.

2020? Hopefully Via de Bayona/Burgos to Ponferrada/Camino de Invierno
My favourites were the (English-version) Roman soldiers, Sender Victorius and Appian Glorious. (I think you have to know the UK National Anthem to appreciate it.)
Oh that’s excellent! 😂

Fond memories...I learned a little latin from these guys. And just now I discovered this, which should help to amuse the home-bound.
Hiker Blues, circa 50 BC ...
Yeah, they sure did make a mess of the countryside. But now look at it!

My respect for Goscinny and Uderzo was matched only by my respect for their translators, who had to capture the sense and story while still maintaining a text (in a different language) that was chock full of puns.

... Uderzo has passed away at the age of 92. We have lost a giant.
Uderozo the illustrator was actually colour blind. This makes his illustrations even more special. I suffer from a form of dyslexia, but was able to follow the cartoons from an early age and they made my somewhat miserable experience of early schooling somewhat bearable. My collected comics have been enjoyed by my children and they buy me the new books for my birthday:-} The series continues under Jean-Yves Ferri (script) and Didier Conrad (artwork).

What an amusing way to learn the language...I used to read Asterix to augment the classroom. The humor and colloquial tongue was better than any class I could have taken!
