We went to Cruz de Ferro, one of the oldest monuments to Mercury on the Way to Santiago. Every pilgrim who passes by there has to leave a stone.
Tomas came along with a pilgrim who had been traveling all the way from Le Puy.
I had painted four canvases and placed them inside a heart made with branches.
Tomas arrived with his sword and performed the Templar ritual of the Four Archangels.
In the meantime, a group of cyclists from Tarbes arrived, wanting to know whose car it was with that city’s license plates. I could not even pay them any attention, because we were just about to invoke the archangels. And then a bus-load of tourists arrived, with the guide shouting out: “take your photos and let’s get going!” – a really crazy scene.
It all ended with a downpour, and the rain did its work.
We next went to Foncebadón to leave the paintings planted in the garden of Gaia.
