Sweets On The Camino

Yes there were chocolate factories but closed when I arrived at siesta time. So I got to buy chocolate at the airport when leaving the country.

The chocolates I want to tell you about were the ones offered to me early one morning while I stopped to allow three French ladies to walk around me on the trail. I accepted one from the first walker but turned down the others. I had passed these ladies the day before as they sat on the ground eating sandwiches. The chocolate was very fancy in its creation and had a nut in its centre. I relished its taste and hated to swallow.

Along the camino I bought large milk chocolate bars with nuts. I cracked each one into blocks and shared with whoever camr by. I even shared with the three Slovenian ladies who later walked into Santiago with me. They mentioned the chocolate. I offered some to an Australian man and he later offered me money when I couldnt find an ATM . The chocolate was great when I was needing an energy boost. I was offered some candy by some South Korean girls. I didnt accept any but thanked them for their generosity.

There were sweet things on the camino! Kindness when you least expected it.
