3/20.- Santiago de Compostela, a Pilgrim


This kid wears the official pilgrims dress. The "Camino" is very tough, so I am almost sure the boy hasn’t completed the journey, but you can see some of the most typical elements of a good pilgrim: the stick and the shell.

The scallop-edged conch shell is the symbol you’ll find along the "Camino de Santiago" roads. It was used to dip water from streams on the way. The other element you’ll find everywhere along the way is the stick, thousands of pilgrims complete the "Camino" every year, and many of them find the stick very useful.
