Today was a very different day from the last few. While I woke up around 5:30 and started walking before 6 as usual, today I walked alone. It was a short day of only 14 miles, my feet are not doing well. Everything from the ankles on up is doing great – far better than expected. Today I had scheduled a short day because I wanted to visit the Cathedral of Santa Domingo (St. Dominick) and visit his tomb.
While I did spend quite a bit of time in the Cathedral, I have also checked into a hotel to care for my feet and my ego. Humility is a hard learned lesson and today the Camino and my feet were my teachers. My frustration with my fragility has passed and I am enjoying both the rest and this beautiful city.
Please pray for my journey and know that you are in my prayers.
