Catching up in the Time of Coronavirus: April 16

Long walks in nearby open space provide exercise and respite.

It is now a full month that we have been sheltering in place, separated from the hugs of friends and family. We have been ordering groceries online, cooking at home, taking walks, attending meetings and church services via Zoom and streaming, and worrying about what the future holds. It has also been a time to catch up.

I’ve been organizing computer files and photos. I finally have edited and organized several albums from our January and February 2019 adventures traveling around Colombia by bus. I had earlier edited pictures from the first week of that trip, fom Bogotá to Bucaramanga, but now I’ve continued with Mompox (inspiration for Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s 100 Year of Solitude)

We celebrated our three-year-old grandson’s birthday yesterday, via an international Zoom party:

Zia’s Third Birthday

Coninuing our stay-at-home traveling, we have been editing Kent and Pam’s accounts of their years living on board sailboats, with a working title We Ran Away to Sea.

I am a retired librarian who walked my first camino to Santiago de Compostela in 2010, all alone from Le Puy-en-Velay to Finisterre. I've since returned to Spain, France, Portugal, or Italy at least every other year and continued to walk the many ways to Santiago.
