What could be better than chocolate to soothe the leftover aches and pains of the Camino? Prior to leaving, my friend Annie recommended we try the hot chocolate while in Spain. ” It's like drinking a melted Hershey bar,” she wrote.
When a light rain began to fall this morning, we ducked inside a Santiago bar for a double order of Chocolate con Churros.
With a renewed source of energy, Reg and I sped off for a tour of the cathedral and adjoining museum.
We continue to bump into Pilgrim friends from weeks ago. This morning we greeted the brother/sister duo from Texas and then an Australian woman we shared dinner and lodging with way back in Carrion.
We're on the lookout for the arrival of two more Pilgrims here in Santiago, and then I think we will have reconnected with most everyone we've spent time with along the way.
Great to be there with you even if it is only “second-hand”
