Day 22 Samos

Greetings from Samos,  a bit off the trail of the Camino but wanted to visit this oldest Spanish Benedictine monastery and one of very important ones.Beautiful setting,  green and narrow valley with fast flowing stream. There's been an exhibition here about Salvado and the Benedictine mission to Australian aborigines.  Bad news is I arrived here without my sleeping bag. A total mystery but as they say life is full of mysteries. My leg is further improving, so I plan at last to do some walking but first retracing my steps to find the bag. Peace. 

 Will remember you  today at prayer in the monastery. (their Chanting is rough, I did expect something a bit more refined,  organ needs tuning,  but it's real. Michael
