Camino de Santiago 2016

Every single one of us possesses the strength to attempt something he isn't sure he can accomplish. It can be running a mile, or a 10 k race, or 100 miles. It can be changing a career, losing 5 lbs., or telling someone you love her (or him).
-- Scott Jurek

Old age is the time to be dangerous. Dangerously fun loving, dangerously alive . . . This is the time to do every single thing we can possibly do with all the life we can bring to it. This is the time to live with an edge, with strength, with abandon. There is nothing for which to save our energy. Now it is simply time to spend time well.
-- Joan Chittister

5/10/2013.  On our final training day, we started at the Pisac ruins and hiked a few miles from 11,000 feet down to the town of Pisac
.  Along our route there were many ruins and ancient terraces.

At Pisac we enjoyed the local open air market which reminded me of the Portland Saturday Market with a combination of foods and handmade items.

The narrow streets were enchanting.  Some of the buildings are built on a foundation of old Incan buildings.
