June 2019, Portugal. The Camino de Santiago (the Way of St. James) is a large network of ancient pilgrim routes stretching across Europe and coming together at the tomb of St. James (Santiago in Spanish) in Santiago de Compostela in north-west Spain. The Portuguese Way is the second most popular Camino in terms of numbers of pilgrims. From Lisbon to Santiago there are around 610 kilometers approx. A way that allows you as a pilgrim to see rural Portugal, full of green fields, rural villages, and little towns, where you can have a nice talk with local people.
The classic, cross-city tram 28 takes you in a ride through the most picturesque parts of Lisbon, between steep hills and breathtaking views.
This woman told me that after work in the field her little dog is accustomed to jumping inside of the wheelbarrow, and that is how she carries him each day after work.
