Frances (1989 and 2016), Portugues - from Porto (2018)
Both in the same 24 hours? The first looks like a fellow I remember meeting coming out of Logroño and the second looks like a fellow I met headed into Astorga. That's a long way to go in 24 hours! (Unless I am misremembering or the first has left his usual haunts.)

Well, number 2 is definitely David before Astorga. There was a festival in Hospital last night, maybe the other guy is attracted to fetes.

Contemplating yet another "final" camino
Porto to SdC May 2019
I was thinking that the other guy looked a lot like Marcelino Lobato Castrillo.

Either him or his twin brother. A very kindly man - met him in the park at Logrono. He was handing out biscuits, nuts and walking sticks.
Have seen lots of photos of him in bars along the way. He's been walking the Camino since the early 1970s.

All that we are is the result of what we have thought.
Decided to move on to Ferrol and walk the Ingles, too many pilgrims on the Frances. I did stop to pay my respects to Denise Thiem this morning View attachment 43302
This brings me back to that emotional May 7th.

Beautyful picture , thank you for sharing .

Wish you well , Peter .
