Day 15 Update

I tried unsuccessfully to post this from Santiago on Tuesday and then again on Wednesday.  I am now home, it is Friday 29 August and will now try posting from home.

I’ve treated myself to two nights in my favorite hotel in Santiago, the Hotel Rua Villar.

I slept the sleep of the exhausted last night and awakened to – wait for it – rain in Santiago, who would have guessed!

After breakfast I walked up the street to the Cathedral so I could hug St. James and say prayers for my friend’s health and their other special requests. I also prayed for guidance for myself.

When I had finished my visit in the Cathedral,  I walked to the St. Francis Monastery for my Cotolaya.

Having completed that, I went for a cup of cafe con leche at Cafe Casino.

And then I went back to the Pilgrim’s Office to meet my chapter’s APOC Chapter Liason, Yosmar Martinez, who is serving in the Pilgrim’s Office.

Tomorrow I will fly from Santiago to Madrid, spend one night there and then fly back to Tucson at 9:35 Thursday morning, 28 August.

The Camino Costa de Morte was tough, but I am proud of my accomplishment. Buen Camino!
