The priest welcomed the pilgrims, some of them by their name and/or country of origin and read the Gospel about Christ restoring sight to the blind. We saw some friends that had gone on ahead of us like Atillio and Kathrin. We hope to run into Brend and Harold and some of the others that will be arriving in the next few days. Some have gone on to walk to Finisterre and/or Muxia which are towns on the coast but Mark and I will take a few days of rest before flying to Seville on December 5th.
We are blessed to stay with some friends of friends who live here in Santiago and plan to eventually open an albergue and pilgrim welcome center of their own. It's a great way to debrief and be with an American family. They have a Christmas tree!
