It’s a good thing I did. I've developed blisters on the balls of my feet over the past two days, and despite treating them with every technique known to medicine, my feet were very painful today. I’m not sure I could have done 19 miles, and even if I did, I wouldn’t have been very happy. I’m hoping that the short day today, and only 12 miles tomorrow, will help them heal faster.
A FEW WORDS ON MY MAP
As often as I can, I am inserting a marking pin where I spend the night. On the main map, very little progress can be seen. If you click on the link under the map, a larger map opens in a separate window. By continuously clicking on the + or – buttons, you can zoom in or out. (You’ll have to re-position the map by clicking the < or > buttons or the up or down buttons.) If you are interested, that will provide a better idea of what little progress I make. You can also switch between satellite images and the map. Finally, in some of the villages, you can drag the little man to a street and walk him down the street to see what I was seeing.
You can also click on my pictures to enlarge them in a separate window – so if you really want to see the rock Marley was carrying yesterday, you can.
