32. At this restaurant, I ordered garlic in addition to main dish. The chef chopped the garlic and served me garlic salad. Such a kind serving was my first experience during pilgrimage. I missed taking a picture. The price was cheap and the food was delicious. The name of this restaurant was ‘Restaurant Borche’.

Several villagers whom I met today asked traveler like me if I was a Chinese, probably due to Corona virus. I answered I came from South Korea. Then they discarded their anxiety. The traveling situation is not normal. The problem is this new virus may spread during incubation period. The Earth village is small, and the spread of virus is really rapid. I have to review my pilgrimage basically.
