Hello, hello and hello again from Ralphie. I am not depressed, do not worry! It is just that I meet people on the road and then they leave. You get to know someone and get to like them and then they go their own way. Which is only proper. But I miss them! I met this wonderful young lady today, called Shakaira(*)(please don’t beat me up if I got your name wrong again!) from England and I really liked her, but she went to do the Camino with a Czech friend of hers. Fair enough, but I miss her and I miss a lot of people. Some of them are no longer on this world of ours.
But now I’m going to Avignon and I am going to dance on the bridge there. The English-speaking amongst you might not know this song: Sur le pont d’Avignon, on y dance, which means: on the bridge in Avignon, people are dancing. I shall go and do my duty and dance on their bridge, because if I don’t, they might throw me in the river. Same thing as if you were to go to California and not wear flowers in your hair. They might hang you for that!?
Anyways, I am feeling a bit lonely, but when I get to Avignon I shall make new friends, as I always do, and I shall stay there. I am tired of saying goodbye all the time! As always, I love the lot of youse and a big hug from me.
(*) send me your email and I’ll sne dyou an invitation to write on this portal and meet all my lovely friends!
