I can’t quite remember where I left off, but so many beautiful people and places have crossed my path since I last wrote. My hydraulic disc brakes failed after a long ride and a shop in León saved the day. I also celebrated a birthday in Molinaseca and Villafranca del Bierzo and filmed at the top of Cruzo de Ferro. Tonight we enjoy Cebreiro, an ancient Celtic enclave at the top of the mountain. Ever closer to Santiago…
I can’t quite believe we are in Galicia already. Days are filled with both exhaustion and joy as we bike and interview and encounter our own interiors. The lust for silence is great. Contentment is growing. The wild cats prowl these ancient stones tonight fighting and loving in the late night quiet. All the pilgrims sleep as I write. I am with them. Can’t decide if I need a sexy dance party or a 12 hour nap. The quiet is enough.

I’m loving every thought of you being there. So happy you planned and are doing this!
