In Hebrew we say, "on taste and smell one cannot argue". H-o-w-e-v-e-r, since the notification is illustrated with the fabulous Osborne bull, it would seem most appreciative most appropriate with a bottle of their sherry.

2035 km of the way to Saint James in Galicia done.
The Perseids are widely known in Spanish and also in other languages as the tears of Saint Lawrence (lágrimas de San Lorenzo). His feast day is on 10 August. If you happen to be under a cloudless dark sky, you don't have to wait until the nights of 11-12 August and 12-13 August but can give it a try already tonight and tomorrow night.

Saint Lawrence was perhaps born in Huesca which lies at the foot of the Pyrenees on one of the Caminos but that place of birth may be a case of "said to be" or "legend has it". He lived in Rome.

I'm not now on the Camino - but in a place with gorgeous dark sky. So I saw one gorgeous meteor, before clouds eventually swallowed up the stars. It was not even close to the 60-100 per hour the local paper was suggesting would be visible, but no complaints: The one I did see was really worth seeing; very long and very bright!
