Santiago May 30

Nothing to do and all day to do it.

A quiet lazy day in Santiago. All our walking friends have left the physical Camino behind them and have headed home or onto new paths. Nothing to do usually involves food and drink so it was a leisurely breakfast and then a visit to the Pilgrims' House to have our laundry done. Yes, this new pilgrims' meeting facility offers wonderful services including doing your laundry. We took a cab to the outskirts of Santiago to the Decathalon sports store. We managed to spend more on the cab than we did in the store; maybe that's a good thing.

The rest of the day was wandering the streets of Santiago from one watering and feeding station to another.

Camino sidewalk/street markers in Santiago. The path to the Catedral.

Four times a day.......Seriously, at least four times a day!

The gold and glitter of the Catedral.

Botafumeira amidst the glitter.

The enormous altar.

The massive Catedral.
