Day 26: Villafranca del Bierzo to O´Cebreiro (November 25)
After walking 31 kilometers, the last twelve of which were uphill, we entered town to find this Franciscan chapel. We (Brend, Mark, Becky, Eamonn, and Kathrin) entered to hear Taizé music playing softly. As we sat and looked at an image of the crucified Christ, we began to sing together the words ¨Bless the Lord, my soul and bless God´s holy name. Bless the Lord, my soul who brings me into life.¨ Beautiful moment to end a long but beautiful day.
Kathrin and Becky (who enjoyed singing Abba´s Fernando to keep up their spirits). Today we entered Galicia and the weather is normally foggy, cold and rainy but today we find sunny, clear and chilly.
Becky was trying to create her own ¨Running of the Bulls¨ but I think she just startled the poor cow.
