Walking the Camino de Santiago, Spain 2008

Not exactly one of our usual stories about Mexican Folk Art
but another type of quest and a really long walk!
Our 500 mile pilgrimage on the Camino de Santiago
Click this link to go to the entire blog of our walk. 

Follows the ancient pilgrimage route starting in the Pyrennes in France,

and ending at the other end of Spain in Santiago de Compostela, Galicia, Spain.

It passes through many of the oldest villages and cities in Europe

and gorgeous countryside. We’ve included a few photos from our last walk

in September 2003 in this tales from the road.

If you would like to view our blog, please email us for the link.

The blog also has the emails we sent home on our last visit,

which will give you an idea of the complexity and wonder of a long walk like this.

Below are photos from our first trip and there are many more on our blog site.

Semana Santa – Sevilla Spain

I thought I would share this Spanish site which has beautiful videos of the Semana Santa Processions this year in Spain.

Click Here to View Videos

There is a collection of videos to view on this site,
and of which are reminders of where all Mexican Catholic
religious ceremonies began, and how faithful to the old traditions
the Mexican ceremonies and passionplays have remained.

You can also browse around the site which has many photographs and stories.

For those of you who do not speak Spanish, you can translate
the working by copying and paste into translate.google.com for a bad but passable translation!
