Rain Poem

Rain again.
More rain.

The rain

In Spain
Falls mainly
On the insane.

To take a train.

(Posted from A Gudiña, on the Camino Sanabrés, Spain.)

Maybe a boat? Or an upside down umbrella a la Winnie the Pooh?

No, no, no Rachel! A train. To the airport.

Seriously, though, the alternative to a waterlogged and sometimes virtually impassable Camino is to follow the road - and I really don't fancy pounding the tarmac for 200 km. For me that's not what the Camino's about at all. I'd rather come back at a more clement time of year and finish it then.
