    "If you know how much I love you, you’d cry of joy."Exactly ten years ago, on a summer day, I was walking through the Tibetan Himalayas. I walked with a very painful headache from altitude sickness, along the muddy trails, chitchatting with my Chinese friends in the mountain rain. I remember one day I took off in a car and sped without any direction, suddenly surprised by the unforgettable scenery of a lake and mountains, reflected by the glow of sunset. It was ten years ago that I was touched to tears by the impression of Dalai Buddhists, who walked hundreds and thousands of kilometers from the door of their house to the Tibetan capital, Lhasa. And ten years later this summer, I am walking to Santiago de Compostela on two clay shoes and it has been over 30 days so far.“We have to be brave to say hello and also to say goodbye.”This is one of the things that I learned from Camino de Santiago : because we were heading to the same destination, we could become friends in the same boat. But as time went, we slowly recognized that one day we should say goodbye and go our own way after the pilgrimage. It was difficult to say goodbye to really good friends.This is a travel essay and photo gallery traveled through French way (Camino Francés) of camino de santiago, also in the names of Peregrinatio Compostellana, Pilgrimage of Compostela, O Camiño de Santiago leading from Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port to the shrine of the apostle Saint James the Great in the cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Galicia in northwestern Spain.
