    Thanks for putting “The Way” up there, that was nice surprise! I am a fan of Compostela, and if we go to Portugal this year, we might be able to hop on over from there. I recommend “The Road to Santiago” by Kathryn Harrison, if you haven’t read it. Pretty weird for an unbeliever, but I love this stuff. I’m sending Lenzo on that road at some point….

    Wow, I’ll have to look into “The Way.” If we go to Portugal next year, there is a good chance we’ll go to Compostela. There is a book called “The Road to Santiago” by Kathryn Harrison about her taking the road with her daughter. It’s fascinating–even for an unbeliever like me 🙂
