1. Cover photo is the message which Mr. Kim Geun Soo posted in his facebook couple of days ago. He is a Catholic theologian. Again I realized the message to be true, today.

3. I could not finish pilgrim’s diary because I was in a hurry to catch the train. When I arrived at the starting station, I finished pilgrim’s diary at the waiting lounge of station. Afterwards I started today’s pilgrimage. The background mountain in this selfie is Mount Olympus.

8. After walking for a while, I felt like eating coffee. I entered a restaurant. The owner gestured that it was not open.

9. However, I am a persistent guy. I expressed my intention by saying the word ‘coffee’ and gesture.

10. Recognizing me as pilgrim who have walked a long distance, the lady owner boiled water and served me with coffee and cookie. I explained about New Silk Road, and she was surprised. Finally she welcomed me.

18. I was absorbed in thinking while I was walking countryside road. I think about the works I have to do in the future. There are two scenarios: optimistic and pessimistic one. I do not need to think over and over the pessimistic scenario. When it takes place, then I respond to the situation and find out alternative. The troublesome one is optimistic scenario. When things go well, I usually meet a problem unexpected. Many people expect me and encourage me to solve the problem. I have to do my best to solve the problem. I have to think about the whole picture of future events. Therefore, I have to think about scenario of long time span. Walking helps thinking. The existence of plantar stimulus makes a big difference in thinking.

19. Then somebody in the back calls me. I was passing by suit outlet mall.

21. Instead of coffee, I asked for a cup of water. Then they served me with water and bread.
