1. It is Dope’s YouTube on BTS’s song ‘Everyday is Hustle Life’ heard yesterday.

The number of views is a big number 540millions.

2. It is a 17-kilometer course that is from the village to the destination going through the pass.
(The time figures in the picture are Google estimation for continuous walking, and they do not mean the actual walking time; only the distance in kms is meaningful.)

3. I arrived at the bus terminal around nine, and the bus was just leaving and the next bus was at twelve o’clock, which was a normal interval. But fortunately I got on bus without waiting time yesterday.
I took my laptop out of my backpack and worked another job. Everywhere can be my office with laptop.

4. This news about the fine dusts is on the air. There are not many fine dusts in this area in Greece. This makes me worry about my friends in Pyeongtaek and Iksan, Korea.

A message came from one of my friends, who had read the mathematical symbol in yesterday’s diary. It gave me the relevant information.

32. I searched this location in the valley and found a history.

The name of Miyazaki Hayao’s comic film, “Naushika in the Wind Valley,” comes to my mind.

The contents is ‘Saving the earth that has been devastated by environmental pollution’. I have not seen the movie, but the theme is appealing to my mind.

I have a title for today.
“Hustler in Windy Valley.”

33. It reminds me of the haneulbaek (sky wall) of Han Gye-ryeong in Sul-ak mountain, Korea.

36. I walk enjoying this kind of beautiful sceneries and finally find a wide view. It is the Aegean Sea.

37. There’s a bridge that works for repairs not far away from the destination. It is a shortcut. Cars are curfew, but no problem in man crossing.

38. From the bridge, the river flows and is heading toward the Aegean Sea.

39. I arrived at the today’s destination, Rapsani Station erarly enough. The Google information of the train time schedule is not the latest.
I take the train back to Larissa, where I have a quarters. Two days walking distance is just taken 20 minutes by train.

40. Here I wait for train and dry sweat.

41. This lady hears my story and cheers. A small dog which is close to me while I am taking a selfie with the lady, is cute. .
And this kind lady donates me five euros. I appreciate for her donation supporting my walking pilgrimage.

I admire it.
It’s the first time in Europe.

42. The above painting is a Roman aqueduct employed as a common European water civilization; below is a European map.

43. The other side is the triumphal arch. I searched for the triumphal arch. I found that it was a Roman classicism arch that was commonly used in Europe.

It seems to give me a message of ‘Triumphal Safe Arrival at Rome’.
