Supporting each other
Perhaps the most fascinating thing about the camino is how total strangers become friends so quickly. With the first week now over, those who only had a week available to walk have gone home, those with a tight schedule have quicken the pace and those with injuries have slowed down. This has resulted in some emotional, even tearful goodbyes after just one week. I wonder what it will be like saying goodbye for those who manage to walk together for five weeks.
