In a nondescript alberique in Spain I met a very attractive young woman who left all that she knew in the U.S. to travel the camino. She had decided that her address for the future is ‘the camino’. I listened to her enraptured.
I thought about her many times after our one night encounter in a cold alberique in Northern Spain. First I thought she was attention seeking. Then I surmised that she was on drugs. Now I think that perhaps she was tired of her mundane job and life.
A pilgrim becomes more open minded after meeting hundreds from 20 + countries.
