A Chinese walker
Olivier is the Frenchman who has introduced us to Mengjui. They had met on the island of Shikoku in Japan on another pilgrimage…
Under 30, very tall, always smiling and a positive mind, that’s what Menjui, a specialist of asian healing, looks like.
He is surprised to discover a hidden garden in the center of Paris, and, very open minded, he is ready to meet whoever gets in contact with him.
After a few days touring in the French capital, departure on June the 11th, from the St James Tower.
At the foot of the Notre-Dame cathedral, near the statue of Saint James, Olivier gives him his dearest belonging : his own scallop shell. Later he will cut a hazelnut branch for him to be used as a walking stick.
Further down on the same day, Mengjui will take a picture of a bronze mark in the shape of a stylized shell. Pilgrims like such signs !
Happy Camino !
