Camino de Santiago, Day 39, Part 2.  Edited notes from Andy Pforzheimer, who for six weeks was walking the Camino with his wife Zelie and with several friends who have dropped in and out to walk part of the Camino with them.

Gerry Dawes is a raconteur, bon vivant*, and liberal redneck. . . a man who knows half as much about Spanish wine as he says he does**, and twice as much as anyone else in the English-speaking world.  

GD Editor's Notes:   *Spanish gastronomy and wine research is Hell, but someone has to do it.
**I know as much as I say I do.
