I had the pleasure of spending some time with Vira last Sunday in Monforte de Lemos. We took her on the wine tour which, even though she does not partake, was an excellent introduction (historical, geographical and cultural) to what she would be coming across in the Ribeira Sacra during the following days.

What an amazing and charming person!

Hardly. :rolleyes:;)
I told the reporter he missed @Charrito , a true Invierno expert, by mere hours.

But it gives a sense of how pilgrims are received on the Invierno, as opposed to the freeway that is the Frances (or now also the Portugues). Walk this camino soon, everyone, because the solitude of the old way will not last forever.

Edit - @Charrito posted at the same time...such a gentleman, and wonderful being. Thank you, for generously coaxing me to an exhibit that I thought would be only about wine, but wasn't. And for much more,@Charrito . A perfect Invierno ambassador.

Outstanding! Congratulations on your newfound fame...

I particularly liked the inclusion of the honorable mention for the folding trash grabber, picker-upper. That might make other pilgrims consider the same thing.

I have eight more packed to give to Rebekah and another three to add to Sybil's supply when I arrive next month... Only 25 days to go. Yippee... Surgical wounds healing well... The countdown begins...

Let us know when you arrive at Santiago... Any joy on finding the credencial?

You will just have to find a way to give back your fifteen minutes of fame. Given your life's avocation, I fully appreciate your conundrum...

Have a safe flight back to the east. Can you let us know when you arrive safely?

Vaya con Dios!

Not going so far as all that. I might post in 'where did you walk locally' thread, if I walk...
