Loved your Mona Lisa Smiles
Have enjoyed your blogs all along the way. And liked that the two of you shared the writing of your experiences. Nice to see that the Capela do Santa Marta made you think of me (your friend Marta) and all the wonderful travels we've shared over the years. Karen, I enjoyed your reflections as you walked the ancient Roman Road -- step by step on the same ancient stones that the early pilgrims who made their way to Santiago de Compostela. I found it quite moving that you thought about how when they completed their pilgrimage -- there was no airplane to whisk them back home to friends and family. We're eager to see you home again. We loved your Mona Lisa smiles! It was amazing to follow you two and Jo as you made your way along the Camino for the second time. See you soon.
