DAY 21 THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE DISGUSTING 👣

Dear Friends so far I have tried to share with you the best and most meaningful parts of the Camino. Today though it’s time to share with you a less attractive side of the Camino.

The Camino is good.

Pain is bad.

And then there is something so unbelievable that I must caution you before you continue. There is a lunchtime ritual on the Camino that may shock your sensibilities.

A Pilgrim or group of Pilgrims will arrive at a cafe for lunch and beers will be ordered. Then one or more of the Pilgrims will unlace his/her shoes and then peal off their socks. Feet are then inspected, bandages carefully removed, and blisters inspected. Sometimes the assistance of another pilgrim is engaged to inspect injuries that the original Pilgrim cannot see. Afterwards ointment is applied, bandages are replaced, clean socks put on, and the beer is drunk. Hand sanitizer optional.

Buon Camino 👣

  1. How are your and Glen’s feet holding up?

  2. Socks peeled
    Wounds revealed
    Injuries healed
    Love prevailed

    Sanitized or not
    Holy is Holy
    When feet go bare and get cared
    When pauses happen and beer enjoyed
    Praise God
    Amen!
