It's like coin in the bank

Just so you know: those who complete the pilgrimage of the Camino receive a certificate of accomplishment or compostela. Rights and privileges that pertain thereto include: (1) having a free souvenir to remember weeks of painful marching under Spain's brassy sky, (2) owning a way-cool Latin document to hang on the wall and (3) receiving a partial indulgence. 

As for (3), I could just kick myself. I was unaware that the indulgence was only partial. I now know that in order to receive a plenary indulgence one must hike the Camino on a Jubilee Year or somehow manage to die some horrible death on the trail. Chalk that one up to my bonehead Protestant roots.

Oh well.

I'm currently looking for some really good ways to spend my partial indulgence. Reasonable ideas (except those from Jason Wilcoxon) will be entertained. Please email me.

Buen caminó!
