Camino Quest
¿Dónde está el baño?

The Camino is not a way or a track or a trail.
It is not a race.
It is not an endurance test.
It is not a pilgrimage.
It is an experience.
Whether it is a good one or a bad one
Is up to you.


This is a fictionalized account of a May 2010 hike on the Camino Frances route of the Camino de Santiago. It is fictionalized because I have changed the identities of some of the individuals.
