With less than 190 miles left of the Camino, Judi and I are feeling great and making “better-than-expected” progress. Okay, we admit it: we took a taxi into and out of Leon to avoid a total of eight miles of industrial zones and construction. We’re in the lap of luxury, we feel, sitting in a two-bed room with its own bathroom in a hostel in the little town of La Virgen del Camino.
Brierley says,”If the idea of taking transport [into and out of Leon] seems like heresy it might be useful to ask ourselves – why not?…The ego and its obsessive behavioral patterns can be just as limiting as a laissez-faire attitude and indifference.”
So, without a guilty conscience, we present scenes from the last miles of the meseta and from Leon.
