To-morrow's man : a hiker, a pilgrim




The Cité de l'architecture et du patrimoine in Paris, France, displays an exhibition called "The fertile city". The theme is about green spaces in towns. For those who have not understood the necessity of it yet. Nothig about the quality of the ground. Apparently the organisers should learn how important it is to grow food near the dwellings to save on transport and useless pollution.



Parks everywhere, and everyone will be happy ! ... The new thing is the way a human being is shown in such scenery.


  In a landscape  made with space, waters, plants of all kinds and architecture, how is mankind described ? 


The man in the picture looks like a pilgrim, or at least a hiker ! Standing, wearing jeans, a t-shirt and a rock sack.



To-morrow's man, a pilgrim, a hiker.

Mid October, Christian, who started his walk from Paris, gets to Santiago de Compostela, via the Spanish North Coast Way and the Camino Primitivo.


1987 km (1242 miles) and so many fantastic people he met and talked with. Some of them became true friends. 


Time for memories :  "My head is full of landscapes, fragrances, colours and feelings. I realised that way to travel is the best one to visit a country. I have seen part of two beautiful countries, France and Spain..."


He particularly gained the strenght to start a new life. And the satisfaction of having completed a personal adventure. "Really, I've found the self-trusting I wanted again for the challenges to come and my own future. I have also tamed lonelyness...


I feel fine, happy, heaped up by life and, above all, in the future I trust now."
