I have always thought sleep good and enjoy it greatly. But I have also cavalierly celebrated the fact that for most of my adult life I have done just fine on 5 or 6 hours of sleep each night. this journey had already taught me a lot about the medical necessity and healing power of sleep. I go to bed each night stiff and in some minor degree of pain in places I had forgotten could feel pain. And yet, after 8 hours of sleep, I am like a new man. The pain is gone and I am ready to gave a new day. Thank you, Lord, for the gift of sleep!

Sounds like you are also learning to listen to your body and have gained the wisdom to do so. ;)

When the Camino calls you, you just gotta walk. Take good care of those feet. Thanks for posting the pictures!
