adios madrid

yes, i know we left madrid about two weeks ago, but madrid never did much for me. this adios is directed to my wonderful madrid friends who left us two days ago in burgos. if any of you are reading this, it was poliorgasmico to chill with all of you!!

on another note, we have finished what is considered the most physically challenging part of the camino. in its wake, are group is battered, but not nearly close to beaten. now we have begun the mental challenge of hiking about 30km a day through landscape similar to kansas. everyday is nothing but a barren wasteland of corn and wheatfields, with nothing in sight but boredom for miles and miles.

although the first day we faced harsh conditions with the temperature reaching close to 95 degrees and hiking around 33km, since then, it has not been nearly as bad. in fact, i´ve finally been able to find the solitude i´ve been seeking this entire trip. although it can be mildly depressing to see nothing but wheat fields for miles, if you pause and listen to the wind rustling through the stalks, it sounds like a mother whispering to her troubled baby.

enjoying spanish kansas,

perry
