We Made It!

We are in Santiago!

The final day and the road into Santiago was quite beautiful. Mostly all off the main road, unlike the Camino Frances to the North that we finished in 2008.
It took a little wile to find the hotel. A beautiful little spot with a back yard and a view of the "Obradoiro", the facade of the Santiago de Compostela Cathedral.
The bells from the cathedral can be heard from the room, chiming on the quarter hour. Soft and beautiful, not over powering and not too loud.
We got our things together and headed back into town for a walk and see the sights.
The center around the cathedral was packed. 2010, being a "Jubilee Year" has brought over two million people to Santiago this year and the streets are packed! The line to get into the cathedral are longer then we have ever seen!
