María sits by the side of the road behind a rickety, homemade stall, her expression a blend of forbearance and exasperation.


The old Spanish lady greets passers-by and invites them to stop, to spend a few minutes with her as they continue on down the road. They are pilgrims and have a long, arduous journey ahead of them, on the ancient Camino de Santiago. María’s encounters with the passing strangers allow us to catch a glimpse of the modern pilgrim.

Despite encountering some difficult pilgrims throughout her day, María nobly continues her task.
