... whether they were going to use the botafumeiro because they don't use it every day, and we knew it had been used the day before so it was unlikely we would have the pleasure. Anyway, to our excitement we were told yes, they would be using it, which was confirmed at 11:45am when ropes were set up to cordon off the 'flight path' to ensure no unsuspecting pilgrims were knocked out as they walked through. The mass was beautiful, and that's saying something coming from me. ...

... line standing tomorrow.

Now find our accom which just happens to be a full on apartment and we didn't know. We thought we had 3 single beds but no, 2 bedrooms, 1 double bed and two singles. Guess who got the double. Advantage of being the girl amongst two boys! So it's off to the supermarket because I am cooking breakfast tomorrow for all of us. No toastadas or croissants tomorrow. Hell yeah!

And hairdresser here I come! Feel wonderful. ...

... It is going to be 36 degrees and unfortunately Dad has woken up with a sore back. We are making great progress whilst the weather is cool. We are amazed today how easily we do the hills leaving the day trippers behind - our fitness has dramatically improved over the past 10 days. It is amazing to see a 70 year old man passing panting 20 and 30 year olds on hills and them looking at him in awe! We stop for breakfast around 9am - dad has bacon and ...
