This morning, I was at the weekly market in Namur, Belgium, giving free hugs to the people passing by.
My violet skirt walked about 2000 km with me in France and Spain. It lasted 4 summers on the Camino, but when I arrived in Fisterra, the poor skirt was totally worn.
This year, as I will be walking on the Camino from Santiago, I would like to post updates on this blog rather than on Facebook.
According to Wikipedia, the International Free Hugs Month is celebrated on the first Saturday of July and continues until August 1st.
In Santiago de Compostela, I attended the prayer for peace, at the convent of San Francisco (everyday at 7:00 pm).
"Make me a Channel of Your Peace" is a song based on St Francis' prayer for peace.
