Beauty all around…

Hello from the longest nature walk ever!:)

ok so the body is beginning to settle in (knocking on wood).  Once I get it going, it seems to cooperate…

the beauty and peace on this walk are all around…I am right where I am supposed to be. It is so inspiring to be on this walk with so many others from all over the world. It is like being in a marathon crowd where you can’t believe the bodies that can do this. I am especially humbled and  inspired by the “retired” generation that are out here. It is humbling…

sometimes I can feel the ancientness of this-passing water fountains from 1080, churches, gorgeous buildings, and no one bothering us. If this were to occur in the states it would feel a bit like Niagara Falls with people trying to sell us stuff everywhere. It is so discreet and respected. We just walk through village after village and stop for a fresh oj (everywhere!), or cafe con  leche which I have yet to grow up into the beautiful coffee thing…smells sooo good though.  Understated. That is what it is. Less is more. We walk on.

made it to puente la reina tonight. Amazing how little I really need. I truly have two tanks, two long sleeves, two pairs of underwear, two pants.  It was a problem this afternoon when I wanted to wash “all” my clothes in a coveted washing machine and had to wear my raincoat while they were being cleaned! :). Flasher…

So beauty today? Fields of yellow flowers…safflowers? Wheat. Windmills. Villages. The most amazing croissant that melted in my mouth. Fresh oj. Kindness. I marvel at what God made out here…

i am good…love to y’all…
