Fat March

Spain? Santiago? Pilgrimage? It's all a big lie. I've been participating in the following television program and am finally back here in Washington D.C. Here are my before and after pictures. One taken in Moron Cuba in August of 04. One taken in Finisterre Spain in June of 07

Okay, so I wasn't really on the show. It takes them 10 weeks to walk 500 miles. It took me 6 and a half.

The program actually sounds pretty interesting, though they seem to encourage healthy eating while walking instead of gorging on chocolate croissants. I'm not sure that would work out for me. We'll see. Maybe next time I need to drop 80 pounds, I'll see if they'll let me be on the cast . . .

Hi Bridget,

I loved the slideshow pictures and captions highlighting your fabulous trip. Some of the pictures were breathtaking, and others (of your feet) were scary. The Camino de Santiago--with its cathedrals, people, and chocolate croissants--seems so civilized. The trails in the Sierra Nevada mountains are so remote and lonely by contrast.

Congratulations on completing your long distance trek--and then some.

Love, Brian

PS You probably didn't have any trouble starting conversations when people saw your hair. Could you use this as an opening day essay topic in English 111?
