- Camino(s) past & future
- Moissac to Santiago Spring 2005 was the first foray.
A Pakistani friend of mine writes to me from Pakistan and he just sent some photos of mountain climbing at K2 which included some photos of porters. They carry Between 25 and 50 kilos, wearing only plimsoles stuffed with dried grass to firm them up so they don't slip so easily. This is a photo of two of them. The air is rarified up there but they don't seem stressed, why their hair is even neatly combed. Which made me think - all our stripping down pack weight - we are such Wimps!!!!!
