Third Week Stompin´To Santiago
Astorga. The first week is one of attrition as many are sidelined with injuries. The second week the tribe gels and the evenings vary from crazy spontaneous dinner parties to subdued serentity of monestries and the calming influence of nuns. Then the trail winds into a city and pilgrims are unleached. Too much wine exasperates the blister wobble. It is now week three and walking thiirty km shouldering ten kilos goes almost without thought as one tunes to nature´s frequency.
