My husband sent me a text that said it must be kind of sad to be finishing up such a big adventure. It was intuitive of him because the girls and I were discussing it at breakfast. The sadness hit us when we approached Santiago and we could hear the loud roar of the airplanes at the airport. One of the things I practiced while walking was staying in the moment. But the Camino was very special. It is difficult to describe what we each came away with. The photographer Dorothea Lange once described a bare cabin enjoyed with her family in a way that kind of sums up the Camino for me. She said it was a place to be together where they all felt a sense of freedom. She thought the cabin answered the longings of the human heart.
I was thrilled whenever there was cereal on the breakfast menus, so I laughed when I saw the name of this cafe.
I visited the Prado Museum today while the girls got their weary muscles massaged. Clouds and sprinkles, but sun is in the forecast until we leave next Wednesday.
