One minute update

 

Full episode

 

I packed my tent and left the town at 5:30 am like a bat out of hell.

Came across more grave sites are a painful reminder of the ultimate sacrifice made by so many young men. Found the church of tic tac toc. I crossed a few bridges and overpasses and I was now in a new province.

More haystacks and flowers and cemeteries. A quick snack, a foot massage and I was back on the grind crossing over water channels.


Reached Péronne at 2:00 pm booked a room at an Airb&b. Lunch was spaghetti and a beer while I waited for my hosts to arrive.

 

I got my pilgrim credential stamped and enjoyed all of the amenities of modern day life. It had a shower, a bed, a kitchen, and a fan, yes!

A quick stroll around the town’s square and I was ready to call it a night but not before having some leftover bread and canned tuna for dinner.

Did I mention that I shaved?
