Camino de Santiago 2007 Part I - Maundy Thursday - The Washing of the Feet and the Last Supper

April in Spain and it’s snowing.  This is Granada not the Grampians! What is going on!?  Chuffin Climate Change!  Checking the forecasts we’d expected some cloud and showers, but snow!?

Camino de Santiago 2007 Part II - Good Friday - The Passion

The most venerated day in Spain.  Every town has processions of penitents carrying sculptures of Jesus.  Each “pasos” can weigh up to a tonne and they're carried through the streets with great solemnity.

Camino de Santiago 2007 Part IV - Resurrection Sunday

Miracle!  A bike-hire shop, open, on a Sunday, we couldn’t believe it!  Cordoba, we love you!

Camino de Santiago 2007 Part III - Low Saturday

We awoke to find Emu’s peering at us from a hill top compound.  We must have bivouacked near Baena’s “roundabout zoo”.

Camino de Santiago 2007 Part V - Pentecost - Awaiting Ascension

This route would have been glorious in the sun.  It wasn’t sunny.  The mild chain suck that had developed on the way out from Cordoba had worsened and led to several moral sapping, fawlty-esque moments of frustrated anger and futile shaking of fists at whatever Gods were plaguing us.
