Too many and too often!
I passed by this huge mural of Don Elías Valiña in Sarria this lunchtime. Paintbrush dripping yellow paint in hand! :) Pretty sure I'd have noticed if he was there the last time I passed by. He was looking a bit more cheerful than when I stopped by to pay my respects in O Cebreiro a couple of days ago!

At least that mural is in the city of Lugo and not O Cebreiro. ...I, too, miss the simpler old days along the camino.
