Thank you for the link to t2andreo's book :) I didn't know that he has written a book. Maybe that's why he has not been on the Forum, I have missed his posts.

Hola @rappahannock_rev
Thanks for the advice about Tom's book. I often enjoyed his posts - especially his stories about volunteering at the Pilgrim Office in Santiago. Unfortunately due to a number of reasons (most I am not aware of) Tom is no longer on the forum. Had Covid19 not stuffed the world I would have spent the first 2 weeks of Oct volunteering in the Office. When I will get another opportunity heaven only knows. Cheers for now.

Having had the pleasure of speaking with Tom for the podcast, it's clear indeed that this is his book! It reads as though one were bellied up to the bar with Tom, being regaled with his tales from the road. The short vignettes fly by and his voice is quite distinctive. Hope he makes it back here sometime.

It's free on Kindle Unlimited--for the moment, at least!

I met up with Tom this past March in Florida for a chat on the beach at a cafe before covid closed them down.
I am really enjoying his book and his personality shines through in his writing style. You can pick it up or put it down as needed without losing focus as each story is it's own little mini chapter.
