Or, maybe not so lucky for some…
Translation: Parents and students in defense of the nusa (neighborhood?) school. We see this as we leave the town of O Pedrouzo. Destination ~ Santiago de Compostela!
The path leads us through wooded areas…
…and small farms
Small hay bundles
The path is now closer to the road.
One last photo opp before we enter the city. Thank you, Random Pilgrim, for taking our picture! Liz and Bryon hiked at our pace so that we could arrive together.
Fence next to the Santiago Airport is full of crosses made from branches. Lavacolla is recognized today more for the name of the international airport than the place where medieval pilgrims came to wash lavar and purify themselves before entering the city.
We still see livestock and small farms.
Wizard of Oz?
Monte do Gozo (Mount Joy) The monument commemorates the visit of Pope John Paul II.
There it is… Santiago! We can see it!
We pass by the ruins of an old church. Spooky…
Here we go!
Ta-Dah!! What? Under construction? Seriously? Oh, well…
Might as well drink in the celebration…
Buen Camino! After 165 miles of hiking, we look forward to new adventures and challenges after a good nights sleep. A bunk bed at Roots & Boots is calling my name… hmmm, wonder who our roommates will be tonight?
I have a feeling we won’t be the only ones counting sheep tonight!
