... up on a statue or carving of something related to the Camino. It is a nice 'greeting' for the day. I hope you are able to make out the details and the captions. I'll try to describe them as much as possible. I think we tend to underestimate the importance of a vase of fresh flowers or a small piece of art in our lives.

Then we rise early (very early the past several days to beat the heat) get out the door and have a little breakfast. If the hotel is not ...
