The big map o the Caminos de Santiago

Spring landscape in EL CAMINO

Hi Javier,
Looks good after the one of the pilgrim in the snow a few days ago in Roncesvalles. What way are the almond trees in Aragón? Would like to see them in blossom. I'm always there in late summer.

Greetings from Mayo. We are having a heat wave!
Almond Trees in Aragón

Can anybody tell me the stage of the almond blossom in Alto Aragón? I am told the ancient stepping stones (three tier) near Castiello de Jaca have been washed away. What a loss. Wonder how old they were?

Wonderful photo of the riverside in Ribadiso do Baixo, Javier. If I remember right, that was taken from the tiny square window beside where my bed was located.

The image will be forever printed in my mind, this lady who, upon arriving in the albergue, took off her clothes with glee and laid down in that concrete landing sunbathing herself, shouting "Hola, chicos!" to the pilgrims going down the hill towards the bridge.

If I'm not mistaken that's a Roman bridge. Which means that that particular view hasn't changed much in the past 2000 or so years.

I really liked staying at that albergue.
