no offence, none whatsoever! thanks for the humour.Hi - I feel the need to explain this joke picture to ensure that I do not offend.
These are not the three wise men, the three kings or magi, these are the three 'not wise men'.
Below is the stable, the star is above, there is the sound of a baby, of angels singing, the baby is born and light has come into the world .. therefore the real three wise men, the real three kings, are already there - this is three stupid men the "not wise men" who happen to be passing at the same time but knowing nothing of the prophecy, their only interest is to find the refugio.
Gasps in absolute horror!! I quite honestly check the sunrise/sunset times every day now in an effort to maintain my sanity...LOVE cold weather but the dark...that is a totally different story.Add 15 minutes a day in the Artic. So now they will have 22 hours and 45 minutes of darkness for tomorrow.
A small clarification: on horseback it's the same as walking, i.e. 100 km, 200 km is for those riding a bicycle (look at the official page)…I fully appreciate the humor, but, as a point of order, were pilgrims to arrive at the office on a camel, they would use the caballo (horse) 200 Km minimum distance standard. This is also applied to other non-horse animal means of transport, such as donkeys.
So, a Compostela would likely be awarded, providing all other requirements were met.
BTW, I liked the cartoon very much.
Hope this helps.
