Awesome opportunity, Rick! I always wanted to take the time to see Eunate, but I'd heard it was closed permanently and it's out of the way.

Did you take any pictures inside to show? What day do you fly home? I haven't seen updates lately...are you doing ok?
You are off the Camino for 5 km but then you miss 2 km of the CF so really only 3 km longer.

More sometime.

Dragged a comb across my head
Found my way downstairs and drank a cup..."

It would still be too far off track for me even if only .3k further...I don't like to walk that far out of the way.

Everything better than 6 bags a day filled with antibiotics that I got last year when I was in hospital.
Glad you will Not have to bring those bags to the Pilgrim Office in May. Peter, you must be on the mend...the up and up! 滮

Thats the strangest looking Tarta de Santiago I have seen :p

By the way, nice avatar, Peter! You look a little like the Cheshire Cat. Now you just need to learn how to disappear while leaving your spectacles suspended in mid air..... like this

I've thought about changing my avatar to this...but Im not sure I want to give up the serious side of my personality...you know, on other threads I am as serious and helpful as my pal Laurie, @peregrina2000.

I guess we all want to be helpful, and I fail to see why one should rule out the other... ;)
True, Turga, but I said what I said as a joke...I would never consider myself in the same league as the "camino guru"!

Buen camino NYC. I've been grabbing the cold and wet to to make your walk sunny, warm and dry but enjoy yourself no matter what the weather.
That's a shame, Rick, that your weather has not been too great. I hope you are still enjoying your walk. After Eunate did you join back up with the Frances or take some other route? Are you going all the way to Santiago? I am curious...think Cat.

Thank you.

Praying for sun.

Or, at least a surcease of rain.

Buen camino to you.

I am a wet shaver (plenty of wet shavings). None of that electric malarkey for me...oh no! Not ever! Never.
What do you do with the droppings... apparently you can not deal with them yourself.

No, I didn't get home safely. I'm due to board the plane this afternoon. But now you've given me second thoughts.
No worries, Rick. If they give the same awful complimentary wine they offer on all the international flights I've flown, you will have no worries of a drunk pilot...of course he could have downed several San Miguel's in the terminal while in uniform before "show time".

This clip reminded me of Sir Les Patterson Cultural attach矇 to Australia.
Just posting a little piece.
Its the quote where he says People come up to me..they just want me to kiss the kids that has me chuckling.

This clip reminds me of SAADD... that's
Severe Adult Attention Deficit Disorder.

Home now. On the flight I worried a bit when the pilot seemed to be slurring his words during announcements but I calmed down after convincing myself that he was speaking Catalan.

Welcome back to the USA Rick..."land of the free, home of the brave"!
The pilots all sound drunk every time I fly. With their garbled voices I can barely understand what they say. I think it's their PA systems that are "smashed", not them.

Don't worry if airline pilots sound a little intoxicated when making announcements to the passengers. It's just the famous Chuck Yeager drawl:

Look what I found a few days ago at my local resale shop! Talk about nostalgia, he takes me back to nearly the beginning of the "Not Serious" and I even gave him red polish...now all I need is a cherry tree!
