The “C” Memories – Walking down the Camino Memory Lane

Cherries galore

Cherries galore

How lucky were we to walk through the Bierzo region of Spain (Castile-Leon) in prime cherry time. Trees overladen with the beautiful fruit sagged with the weight of their bounty. Spain is the second largest producer of cherries in Europe.

A sign “Comes lo que quieres” (Eat how many you want) invited us to sample the delicious fruit.Even Nestor enjoyed the succulent treats however many of us who might have overindulged a wee bit were reminded of our actions the very next day!

Cherubs are often found adorning churches along the Camino Way.

Whether these are considered cherubs or angels, I found them to be a great subject of many of my photographs.

I am still in awe that so much of Spain’s old statues and columns still stand today. Europe is so much older than our Americas, and it was a thrill to discover such art form.

Counter Calculations

I must admit that my first exposure to craftsmanship such as this statue was during my visit to the cathedral of Burgos. I spent so much time admiring the details of this work, the way the stone was carved to emulate fabric, and the intricate design of the face. Even the pillows seem soft and fluffy despite being carved out of stone. This is truly amazing work!

This is one of my favorite photographic capture of originality. This bar owner tabulated our purchases, pencil to counter. When the tab was paid, he’d strike across the total, and periodically would wash away the recent calculations.  This was by far the most unusual accounting practice I have ever witnessed – but it seemed to work for him!

Cheers from the virtual Camino tour!
