The pilgrims have been given a list of questions, and they’ll have some slides to accompany their answers:

What drew you to this Camino?
Where is it located?
Length of the walk – both miles and the recommended number of days
How much asphalt?
Elevation changes?
Highlights? (museums, cave paintings, food, etc)
Infrastructure available?
Other pilgrims on the way, or a more solitary walk?
Pros and Cons?

WHAT TO BRING: Tapas to share. Alcohol is not allowed at this venue, so no wine this time. As always we’ll provide the plates, forks, cups, and napkins.

PLEASE RSVP so we can have name badges ready. Thanks!
