Today was really interesting. I walked with two ladies, one Irish and one Swiss, both women of faith. This was so very refreshing for me as most people I have met so far have not expressed any strong faith. The Irish lady is a teacher who is preparing to do volunteer teaching in New Zealand and Palestine. The Swiss lady is a former theology student who is contemplating her career. We had a fascinating discussion on walking in faith and how to overcome the human nature to live in fear. The camino somehow lowers your defences and you open up so quickly to total strangers. One hour on the camino is like one year is normal life.
