Xacobeo 2010 (Part 2)

This is the second installment of photos from my walk across Spain on the Camino de Santiago, June-July of 2007. 2010 is one of Santiago’s (St. James) holy years, and I’m posting these photos as my personal contribution to this year-long celebration of the Way of St. James.

This is the official Xacobeo website, in case you were curious. (It’s in the Galician regional language, galego, but you can change it.)

Bodegas Irache, about 9:30 a.m.,where there is literally a fountain of free Rioja wine for pilgrims

The famous fountain of never-ending red wine

We did not drink water on the trail that day...
