Reaching Santiago de Compostela...

When I finally reached Santiago it was almost anti-climactic in that
you never get a good view of the Cathedral from afar, but it was more
of a gradual merge into the outer city to the inner part. Although
Santiago itself is a fun place to be, the real pleasure was the
journey and not the end goal. Through good luck I found a great cheap
pension just across the street from the Pilgrim office and right next
to the Cathedral through a fellow pilgrim. Santiago is known for it's
wonderful seafood, especially the calamari. Still a vegetarian and
wanting to do another Camino I decided to move on after a few days.
