Camino Pilgrims II

From the Road to Campostela:

We are now waking up in Villar de Mazarife, located about 20 km from Leon, and will soon head out and we expect to walk close to 30 km today. 

We stayed our first night at a Benedictine Monastery in Leon, where we were given shelter for free. And it was close by to the beautiful gothic Cathedral, where Don Eduardo, the rector of the Cathedral and former seminary rector, was extremely friendly in receiving our group even to the extent of buying tapas and 'cafĂ© con leche' for us and giving us a small tour. 

We had great success with the juggling thus far, it has been fun putting forth these shows! We had three shows the first day (Sunday) and one before we left on Monday and one when we arrived in Villar de Mazarife. 

I hope to write to you again soon, know we are well and already on the Camino on pilgrimage to the tomb of St. James. We keep all of you in our prayers, please continue to pray for us!
