Death in the Camino

No, it is not the title to the latest triller novel set in the Camino. The sad fact is that people do pass on while walking the camino.

On the first day of my camino I witness a memorial dedicated to a Japanese pilgrim.

There were more to come, a German pilgrim...

And an English pilgrim...

While we try not to be reminded of our mortality, the camino has a way to remind us that we have to live in the present, if we are to live at all.
