Spent the day at leisure took in the Gijon city sights, sounds and history with my long time friend, fellow Fort Hare FTT (Fun Time Team) committee member and golfing buddy Neo Tsholanku. When I mooted the idea of doing the Camino Neo was the first to put up his hand and two months ago he confirmed and committed to come.
Now we are here and tomorrow is the first day of the Camino we start the walk (25km) from Gijon to Aviles. In preparation we visited the local cathedral lit candles and made a prayer in remembrance of our dearly departed, ancestors and families back home. See pictures under images tag on the blog menu.
