The other day I received a comment wondering why King Juan Carlos was walking with a cane and special shoes during the Pope’s visit. This is an interesting question, so I’ve made a blog post out of it:





While he was in Mallorca at the begining of August, he stopped using the crutches he’s had since the knee operation. Because of this, the King overtaxed his healthy leg and developed an Achilles tendinitis in the other foot. His Majesty will be using the special shoes and the cane until the tendinitis heals.
