En route between Astorga and Rabanal del Camino

this is the thing about pictures of people on the Camino.
This light within...
As if the Camino washed the soul and cleared the eyes."

When I was traveling in France in 2006 I stayed in a hostel in Cahors.
There I met a Frenchwoman who had been walking three weeks
along the Le Puy route.
Her face glowed with a radiant joy.
Speaking to her was what first gave me the idea
of walking the Chemin myself....
