Day 23 – Vila do Conde – A small step

Tuesday the 16th, today we did one of our shortest walks; not more than 7km. So we had time for breakfast, a look at the beach and almost enjoyed the nice flat walk 😉

Well, as mentioned before it’s not that bad, but slow walking 30 km could take about 10 hours so you don’t always have the time to stop. Hmmmmmn … sounds perhaps like a kind of Camino stress syndrome?!?

However, stopping at Vila Do Conde was a good choice, great city with fine long aqueducts!

It’s also the city where José Regio was born. Didn’t know that and to be honest I didn’t have the faintest idea who José was.

José strongly focused on the theme of conflict between Man and God and between Individual and Society – all according to Wikipedia. Sounds very serious and important and therefore worth a statue. So is there a conflict I should choose to get my own statue? Because, to be honest, who doesn’t want a statue – it’s so cool!

Well, until I find out an interesting conflict I have to be satisfied with my other Stone brothers have succeeded in. Below is the famous Marking Stone in Vila do Conde. This very unique stone helped vessels to avoid running into rocks or sandbanks! Could the stone at the right be as useful too? Should I dedicate my life to standing on a sandbank! Or could I perhaps focus more on trying to help my fellow humans(?) not to run into the sandbanks of life? Sounds difficult!
