Early Morning in Insua - by b

We've travelled a LOT this year... So, I've gotten to take some very different runs in the early mornings before the rest of the family wakes up. Thru snow in Munich. To the Hill of Evil Counsel in Jerusalem (it was much colder, but no snow). Thru Djemaa el Fna in Marakech. It's really cool to see places wake up. Right now we're in Insua in the north of Portugal, basically on the west coast of Europe (zoom out on the map to get a sense). I've been for two runs here so far.

It's really peaceful here. Country roads and paths. Sheep. Cows. Water. Flowers. And, of course, Jesus. Portugal is SuperCatholic. Even though, like a lot of places, young people are abandoning the church, there are lots of churches around.. and little shrines too. Some early morning Insua scenes:
