On July 20, 1969, man first set foot upon the Moon. The project that took us to the Moon was called Apollo, ostensibly after the Greek god associated with hunting, harmony, and healing.
Perhaps the folks over at NASA had sense of humour, or maybe God the poet was at work again, for July 20 is... (more at http://www.thomryng.com/amateurmonk/the-poetry-of-apollo-2017/)

This is a lovely example of a Spanish street (alley, really) with steps. You will find these pre-automobile streets everywhere on the Camino where a town or city has a serious elevation gain.

I confess that, what with all of the mazy, crooked streets and endless courtyards in the medieval center of Burgos, I may have gotten slightly lost in my exploring.

Like many medieval cities, Burgos is full of these lovely hidden courtyards, sometimes accessible only through covered archways. This one is by no means atypical, though I did find it particularly pretty. The streets are a bit of a labyrinth, particularly when the buildings are tall enough and...

There is a tendency in the modern world to minimize the use of vestments in the liturgy.
