Tim Cahill (founding editor of Outside magazine) once remarked, “A journey is best measured in friends, rather than miles.”
Along the Jesus Trail, one cannot help but meet new people, try new foods, hear new languages. It is reason enough to repeat the journey.
Last year, I bunked in a dormitory room along the Trail and listened to no less than five languages in a single evening.
This year, I was contacted by Luisa Alcantara e Silva, a staffer from the Folha de São Paulo. The Folha is Brazil’s largest daily newspaper. I was excited to learn that they wished to publish an article on the Jesus Trail. The paper had a reporter on the ground. What did they need? More photographs. I was only happy to oblige.
