A good end cannot sanctify evil means; nor must we ever do evil, that good may come of it... We are too ready to retaliate, rather than forgive... And yet we could hurt no man that we believe loves us. Let us try then what love will do: for if men did once see we love them, we should soon find they would not harm us. Force may subdue, but Love gains: and he that forgives first, wins the laurel.
William Penn

Be patterns, be examples in all countries, places, islands, nations wherever you come; that your carriage and life may preach among all sorts of people, and to them; then you will come to walk cheerfully over the world, answering that of God in everyone...
George Fox

To Oropesa del mar and Beyond

Nice place to walk

Not so nice a place to walk

The view from the balcony of my host's apartment in Oropesa del Mar

My hosts from Russia, Galina and Alex on the right with their two children, and Vlada on the left, with her two children.

The timer worked again. I'm wearing my official 'Masterpeace' shirt, a gift from Wijnand Boon, fellow pilgrim.

I asked the price for an orange, they gave me four, no charge.

Hiding in my tent, and peering out the screened window. Squadrons of mosquitos waited outside.
