My Camino Day 11

My Camino Day 11: Santo Domingo to Belorado (21 km)

I got up and started walking at 5:30 am. The blister on my right foot was not getting better in the morning so I decided to start the day early and walk very slowly. It was another beautiful journey with gorgeous morning sunlight and quiet wind. I thought about my relationship with God a lot today as I endured the pain on my right foot. A fellow pilgrim once asked me one of the most common questions we have: why does God allow pain in our lives? How would you answer that?

When I finally arrived at Belorado and settled down at the small but cozy albergue I learned that  I would need to take care of my foot in order to finish the Camino. So I got rid of my ego and decided to take a rest day tomorrow in Burgos. That means I need to catch a bus to Burgos in the morning and won't be able to see all my fellow pilgrims whom I met on the first day in Orrison. I will be one or two days ahead of them and they will not be able to catch up to me. I hope to connect with them one day in the future, but for now I am praying for God's blessings for each one of them: Reiko, Jan, Sam, Marilyn. Buen Camino!
