Ivar also supplied great service shipping my copy of the DVD too.

We saw the documentary in a theater before our Camino with the producer there to answer questions but first she asked the audience before the showing (as with all her showings) who wanted to go. After the showing she asked again. Fewer in the Boston audience but she said the response was different everywhere.


Camino = Empathy + Compassion.

Just watched the first 20 minutes of the video. Had to stop. Too much beauty, sadness, longing and so many other emotions...very well made video.

As I wrote earlier, we saw the documentary on a theater. Last night we watched 10 minutes of the DVD when trying out a new DVD player. The film and DVD were different. The film pretty much started with Ann describing problems with her feet on day 2 and showed nothing about crossing the Pyrennes. A friend asked the producer later why day 1 wasn't shown. The DVD shows some of day 1 and Ann complaining of slowness but skips her complains about her feet (in the first 10 minutes at least.) Knowing about her injury gives a little more meaning to Ann's comment about a bad day for the ego is a good day for the soul.

New credencial is on less glossy paper than the one from last year. So less inkmarks from the sellos ;)
And T-shirt was ment for a gift to someone else but might keep it for myself.
I will share the credit for the improved credentials with Beatrice Karjalainen from Sweden. Last summer I literally bumped into her on Rua do Vilar while I was here as a volunteer. She showed me the problem, and had written about it on another thread.

Once back in the office, I staged a 'show and tell' demonstration of the paper problem using selected credentials from the 'lost and found' and my personal credential.

The result was that, once the 30,000 they had last August were gone, the new credentials were ordered with more porous paper...RESULT!

Thank you Beatrice!
