October 2nd is my mother in laws 94th birthday. I hope it gave her all she wishes for in love and care.
The day was another laundry day and wandering the streets of Santiago and an irritating time getting tickets printed at the library for the train with old, slow, breaking down computer and printer in an otherwise beautiful facility. We met up with Mary, Jon and Marco, Jon’s friend who connected when we came into Santiago. We enjoyed tapas, sangria and chat. We are starting to feel our goodbyes to this city and the journey.
Di had another good day of rest in bed and chair. We brought up salads, pizza and vino blanco at the end of the day.
Jonathan sent us a photo he took at our first washing day in Ponferrada. You can see our absorption in having a strong wifi.
We are only a block from the cathedral and the portico where pilgrims walk through when they enter the courtyard of the cathedral. The portico offers perfect sound and there is constant music day and into the night. We can here it from our room as well as see the top of the cathedral out our window. The day begins with bag pipers playing and trading off throughout the day then later and afternoon other artists come one at a time to express their musical gifts, flutists, tenor, soprano, violinist, and on. It is always beautiful to me.
