Day 34 -Leon – 10/18-19
Spending two nights in the Old Town portion of the city marked by the left footprints of a Roman soldier. They always marched with the left first. Me too…I’m now 600k into my 1,000k trek and am now down to my Fryeburg Academy wrestling weight! I highly recommend this Camino diet to anyone. You can eat all you want. This town is full of wonderful pastry shops so I am hoping to boost my calorie intake so I don’t disappear entirely.
There are numerous museums and church’s with the centerpiece, of course, the cathedral. My little IO Bear Buddy is also enjoy the trip and has started many conversations about Osteogenesis Imperfecta along the Way.

So many beautiful buildings and so much history. I ended a nice day with a mass and pilgrim blessing in the Basilica de San Isadoro. Earlier I toured the attached museum and saw the chalice which is believed to have been The Holy Grail. The priest was quite a character inviting all the pilgrims back to his chambers after the blessing to get our document stamped and for a photo op.
