Day-6 Partial: Belmont to Menlo Park

Although only 10 miles into the day and while resting at a Starbucks, I am recharging along the way with all the humor I see-it’s everywhere! A shoe in the middle of the Camino Real, obviously it had try to flee its owner’s dastardly tortures, gets hit by a car; a front door to an office suite marked Magrittelike, “This is not an entrance”; and then there’s the whole thing about the “moral compass app,” whose existence is being denied on signs on top of taxis. Oh, it’s a great world we live in–humor–the ultimate natural additiction!

    Kurt, you are doing a wonderful job keeping us posted. We are with you in abstencia. Were you well prepared physically before you started? 20 miles the first day? Weather looks like not a problem. One step at a time.

      Actually I wasn’t. For all my walks, I only practice up to 12 mi. and the rest I bump up on the road. It’s been a fun walk so far. Cheers, k.
