Today the girls walked for six hours . They are are about 40km west of Pampalona now. Julie says that she is getting tired and worn out, but is determined to continue , driven by the needs of women here in Kyrgyzstan. Asel on the other hand is just skipping along and is still full of excitement each and every day .
there are a lot of walkers on the Camino right now, and in the evenings, it is difficult to find a place to stay, this means that they have to start earlier each day , and stop a little sooner so that they can fins a place.
Julie says that the scenery is incredible and the architecture is fantastic
Back in Kyrgyzstan, we have been hard at it. Yesterday we brought the kids that live at the apartment out to work at the farm for the day to help get caught up. Kolya came back from the city as well to help. Some of you may remember a man named Baski that was a good friend of Jengish that we had helped with surgery for a brain toumer, His wife and Daughter have also come out for a few days to Help make the Tomato sauce . So while we have been weeding and picking , they have been busy doing the canning .
|The first batch is coming off the line|
