As you can see, there is one person trekking. It is a pilgrim lane taken from the Middle Age.

All Apostles are in Palestine except St. James who traveled until that corner of the Roman Empire. Santiago is the Spanish translation of James and "Compostela" seems to come from "Campus Stelae" in Latin.

As said, since Middle Age, pilgrims have gone there walking or ridding (and these days also by bike).

Even if it is not usually a final destination of a journey it is normal to see those signals in the road that would go to that city paralel to the official old lane.


The main lane starts in four different French cities, three of them join very close to Spain and enter in two points, joining in Puente La Reina.



Paris, Vezelay, Arles and Le Puy are called the start of the "Royal Lane of St. James". But there are someone more.

This is a map





PS. You can make the pilgrim journey when you want. They would consider you a pilgrim if you make the last 100 km walking (or 200 km by bike or ridding by horse). There are people who make the journey in several years (every year some steps).

And... if you want a "special year", those which July 25th will be on Sunday are considered specials.

Some pics from Russia (taken from the FB page of an overland expedition)

Wouldn't that "Bachivsk" be either Bielorussian or Ukrainian? The Russian version of the Cyrillic alphabet doesn't have a letter that looks like "I."

You're right, I looked on that page and they said that the photo is taken in Ukraine. Bachivsk it's an Ukrainian city. But did you study Russian or did you learn the alphabet just for fun? Most Westerners don't have a clue about cyrillic, let alone knowing the difference between national variants. Not that it's difficult (unlike Chinese or Arabic) but it isn't used abroad unlikely Greek that is used in maths and physics.

I learned the Russian version of the Cyrillic alphabet when I was about eight years old. Just for fun. 'Cause I'm weird that way.

It was later on that I discovered that there were variants, and with recent events occasionally showing Ukrainian signs or graphics from Ukrainian TV channels on my TV I actually spent a few minutes on Wikipedia the other day and found a neat little table: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyrilli...#Summary_table

Me and two friends learned Cyrillic in the junior year of high school just for fun. We would pass eachother notes and when the teacher caught us, he would usually read it out loud to embarrass us. But they didn't understand Cyrillic (we just wrote Dutch in the Cyrillic script, not actual Russian).

Exactly the same story with me, just that I learned... Arabic script. But I forgot it pretty quickly, cause I don't understand the Arabic language.

CalTrans got smart and made it part of a sign too large to steal. Before the Interstates, US 50 actually ended farther west, following then US 99 south to Stockton, then heading west along the current I-205 and I-580 to Oakland. California signage is so old (very typically) you can actually still see where the US 50 shield was patched over on a sign in Oakland even though the route was decomissioned decades ago. There's also a distance sign for Sacramento in Ocean City.

Just a guess: they are not along this road, though reachable by using it for a part.

I don't know what you're showing to me. I'm trying to say that those cities should be written on the place of that bp ad (right of the barrier).
