un milagro de santiago

I had walked about 37K. I had been walking for about 10 hours without only 2 breaks. My shoulder was sore. I was plodding along the empty highway instead of navigating the grassy path. No cars. No other pilgrims.

Left. Right. Left. Right.

I wanted some chocolate from inside my pack, but I didn´t want to stop. Almost there. Keep going.

A car swished by me, passed me. Then it stopped about 75 meters ahead. A man got out of the passenger side holding a package. He crossed the road, placed it on the guardrail and yelled back at me in English: "This is for you!" He crossed the highway again, got back in the car, and sped off. By the time the car had disappeared, I had arrived.

I felt like 007 getting instructions.

There it was, a small white package. I picked it up. I opened it up.

A chocolate croissant. The first one in days.

You missed the last sentence ….the one that goes “and then I woke up to find it was all a dream!” ….otherwise its sounds very much like you were delirious from the heat/walking/your own company (delete as appropriate) and began hallucinating!

Seriously though – I think it is a great story even more so because (I am hoping) it is actually a true one! – aghhh it’s the little things that restore one’s faith in human kindness!

Keep on truckin along

I'm thinking I might need to start my own blog if that's what it takes to get chocolate croissants delivered!

Bonjour I'd like to thank you for such a terrific made forum!
Just thought this is a nice way to make my first post!
The only right way establish property it is usually a smart conclusion to begin a savings or investing plan as early in life as obtainable. But don't despair if you have not started saving your money until later on in life. With honest work, that is reading up on the best investment vehicles for your assets you can slowly but surely increase your growth so that it extends to a big amount by the time you hope to retire. Inspect all of the achievable asset classes from stocks to real estate as investments for your money. A wisely diversified portfolio of investments in different asset classes can help your money enlarge throughout the years.

Hello. My wife and I bought our house about 6 months ago. It was a foreclosure and we were able to get a great deal on it. We also took advantage of the 8K tax credit so that definitely helped. We did an extensive remodeling job and now I want to refinance to cut the term to a 20 or 15 year loan. Does anyone know any good sites for mortgage information? Thanks!

Mike
