It seems so long that we had the luxury of a sleep in, which we did today. Felt really good. After breakfast we went to attend the noon mass at the Cathedral. Because of the large turnout everyday, we decided to arrive by 11.00am so that we will have the chance of seats. But .. the cathedral was already full. Imagine, people show up way before 11.00am for the noon mass! Most of the congregation were pilgrims and tourists. I didn’t understand a single word but it didn’t matter – just being there to soak in the atmosphere was more than enough. I thought I could do some shopping after lunch but nothing opens in the afternoon in Spain – it’s siesta time!! So I hardly bought anything except for a few boxes of Santiago Tart (one must never leave Santiago de Compostela without their famous Tart!). We had a nice evening tonight – excellent dinner and great entertainment from Steven (telling stories of the old days!). This is our last night with Li Leng, Steven and Teddy. They are on an early flight in the morning to Madrid to connect on a Qatar flight to Singapore. They arrive on Friday afternoon!! We will all have an early breakfast and then we will see them off. Then it will be our turn to pack and head for the airport at noon for our flight to Barcelona where we stay a night and then I am on a morning flight on Friday morning for Singapore .. Home Sweet Home!! This is my last posting on this blog. See you all soon!!
