The 18th Annual Gathering of the American Pilgrims Friends of the Camino took place in Menlo Park, California, March 10-15.
For the first time, it was held in Northern California – in Menlo Park. This organization is secular but by the nature of the undertaking – perennial track and trail walkers and spiritually seeking venues – attract a special type of people that in the end look exactly like you and me. Indeed they are. They just see the world and nature with very positive eyes.
One of the key features of this gathering was the touting of the Camino Portugues as a very attractive alternative to the Camino Frances.
