For the last couple of days I've walked around Hobart – a beautiful town – the capital of the state of Tasmania.
At least, I've tried to walk. My knee is still giving me problems – a residue of the Camino in April/May.
Tomorrow I see a knee specialist.
If I'm to do any serious walking in the future, I will have to get my knee fixed. It will probably require surgery.
The numbness in my left foot is slowly fading – as the Neurologist predicted. That's good news. But the knee over the past couple of days was so painful I limped everywhere.
I walked the Camino on Ibuprofen – for 28 days, 3 x 600mgs. That's how I got through it, by masking the pain.
But I wanted to finish the pilgrimage.
And I have absolutely no regrets, because that walk changed my life.
