Excertos: “is hard to find someone who dances to a similar beat”

“Still, a pilgrimage has to be completed alone, or at least begun alone. Along the trail, I keep running into couples arguing loudly, or people who tell me that they have separated from their partners on the Camino. Some people grouchily match their partners’ incompatible rhythms for miles until they brim over with resentment. Good friends decide on impulse to go their separate ways. In the end, nearly all pilgrims who are in it for the long haul walk alone. I virtually never see groups. Rhythm and pace are what separate most people on the trail. It is hard to find someone who dances to a similar beat. If you hike in a slow waltz, the way I do, you can’t join up with a speedy flamenco pilgrim. Once you’re quite sure of your pace, you might be able to link up with someone. The pilgrims’ walking styles reflect their feelings and thoughts and their very essence.”
