Last Leg

<!– @page { margin: 2cm } P { margin-bottom: 0.21cm } –>

I’m in the train on the final leg to St. Jean Pied de Port. The little train, connecting Toulouse to St. Jean Pied de Port, is packet with pilgrims who take this challenge in her life to walk el Camino. One can feel the excitement which is in the air connecting each other like an electric current. I’m sitting together with two ladies from Korea, Jeeyem and Kim and we try to communicate. Pretty chaotic you can imagine, but somehow we had a conservation. Through the train window we could see the Pyrenees covered in dark clouds and it looked like bad weather’


By arrival all of those pilgrims running out, like chickens to their coops, to the government office to receive their officially pilgrim paper. Here again,in the office, several language humming through the room. But a little bit later we had, with proud, our passes.


I spend the night in the same Hostel I have been 4 years ago and even in the same room. I wouldn’t have been surprised if my friends would have been there too. Yes, the Camino is full of magic, but this would be to much asking for.
