The instructor told me to stand at the beginning of the downward slope.At the word "Go !" I began to jog forward. Lo, about the 5th or 6th step,my foot no longer touched the ground !
No, I had not learned to levitate at my advanced age. No, I had not joined the company of winged angels - which would be unexpected and certainly unmerited.

Would you like to hike along one of the routes used by European pilgrims for hundreds of years ? Starting at various points in Europe, pilgrims made their way to a city in northwest Spain called, appropriately, Santiago de Compostela. Third only to Jerusalem and Rome as a pilgrimage destination in the Middle Ages, this city is the place where one of Christ’s disciples, St James, is supposed to have launched Christianity in Spain.
