“I took this photo in a small plaza in Leon, Spain, while walking el Camino de Santiago in September 2011. 20 days into walking, and having bonded with many of the pilgrims, it was one of the most amazing people’s birthday, Chabelo, el amigo Mexicano.”
It was one of the best birthdays I have ever attended (and that is why I had mine on the camino, 2 weeks after this one:D), having “happy birthday” songs over 15 times in different languages, popping a champagne bottle, getting a small cake and loads of hugs. Such an international birthday party would sure bring a smile to anyone’s face.”
