Reflecting on a pilgrimage across Spain


BRATTLEBORO — The experience of walking Spain's thousand-year-old pilgrimage trail will be the focus of a talk and slideshow at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 12 at Brattleboro's Books Memorial Library, 224 Main St.

The slideshow and discussion will be led by Betsy Bates, Cicely Carroll and Bob Lawson of Dummerston and Putney.

The Camino is nearly 500 miles long, running from the Pyrenees in France across the northern portion of Spain to Santiago de

Compostela. Winding from village to village, across farm fields and beside streams and rivers, the path is now walked for many reasons and by many people from many countries.

The presenters have each walked on the Camino before and will share their photos, experiences and reflections from their walks.

There will also be a short introduction to group walks on specific portions of the Camino that are run

by Travel Fever Tours of Putney.
