In between the cities of Hospital de Orbigo and Astorga at the top of a hill sits a run down building, a man, and a stand with free, organic food. This man, David, hiked the camino and decided to set up camp at the top of this hill and share his food and his life. His goal in life is really to share whatever he has. He provided pilgrims with all sorts of food-watermelon, bread, granola bars, nutella, rice cakes, peanut butter, oranges, and probably about 20 different types of tea… all for free.
David is such a free spirit and I love his life purpose. He gets food from a store (Iḿ not sure if he rides a bike or something, or if he gets food delivered everyday) but either way itś all organic and delicious. He sleeps outside under a canopy-type structure and lives in harmony with the world. That was one of his main points-to live in harmony with nature and his surroundingsm and share what you have with those in need.
As a pilgrim with food waiting for me at every stop, I wouldn´t say that I was in need of food so perhaps I shouldn´t have eaten from him, but I really appreciated his presence and encouragement. David was willing to give all he had to the passing pilgrims, an action that is very unusual, especially outside of the camino.
