Our Camino walk started in St Jean Pied-de-Port, France. We walked westward towards Santiago. Read the painting right to left!
Our return to Spain was stopped by
the arrival of Covid-19, which has been devastating for the people of the towns along The Way. This detail from Painted Steps comes from Bosch, and is a reminder that plague is not a stranger on El Camino.

The bottom layer of Painted steps has studies from Bosch and, as above, Goya. I visited these two artists' work in Madrid in the week following León. They guided my journey of understanding afterwards and, helped me digest the experience.
