The essence of the Camino

A woman stopped us at a Pilgrim cross on the walker's Camino just outside Astorga. 'Have your children discovered the essence of the Camino yet?' she asked. I think she must have been talking about those one euro plastic chupa balls the kids discover every time we stop. Every village on the Camino seems to sell them. I think we are carrying about 14 of them now.
