Didn’t sleep much last night. Kind of excited. Short walk this morning. At 6:30 this morning it was raining HARD and the wind was really blowing but by 8 when we left it was just cloudy and looking like rain. Decided to stop for a coffee and my PGS (Personal Guidance System-thanks Bill) must have been working as one minute later it was pouring down rain. Finished our coffee and the rain was finished too. A few minutes later we were in front of the Cathedral. Decided to quickly find a room as it was startingg to rain. Got a nice pension for 25 euro and decided to stay two nights. Hurried back to the cathedral just in time for mass. At the end is when the botafumeiro ceremony is done. I will post pictures and a video when we get home but it is a HUGE incense burner that takes 8 men to get it swinging high up from one end of the cathedral to the other. It is awesome to watch. The original idea was to rid the cathedral of of stink of the unbathed pilgrims. It was worth every mile we walked just to see the ceremony. There is another ceremony tonight at the pilgrims 7PM mass and we are going back. Also my Aunt Vera passed away a few months ago and my cousin Frannie gave my sister and I a small capsule of her remains to place where she would like to go. Some of them were placed at a casino she liked to visit but some of her ashes are going to mass with us tonight as she has “walked” the camino with us. The rest of the small capsule will go to Finisterre. I think she’ll like that. This afternoon we had a great meal and then went to the Pilgrim office and got our compostellas (certificate of completion). It appears there are about 1000+ people a day completing the journey although most only start in Sarria (100 kilometers back). We started 800 kilometers back. Since I don’t have to get up at 6:30 am tomorrow for the first time in 6 weeks, I am going to stay up and add up how many kilometers we did actually walk. We have had a couple taxi and bus rides due to illness, injury. It’s close to 400 miles. Will be closer to 500 by the time we get to Finisterre and Muxia. While at the pilgrim office we ran into the people we saw at the Seattle Tacoma airport when we were leaving. They had just finished the trip as well. We keep running into many people we have met. Many remember us STILL from Dales header into the stone bench. Three stitches and abraised face!! What a way to make yourself famous on the Camino. Only person we haven’t seen lately is Peggy. Maybe over the next few days! Looks like our hot weather is about to end. Rain for next five days or so.
