Today is Monday and I'm taking a day of rest to give my tired feet and knees a rest, and to do the tourist thing for a few hours.
This city reminds me of my Granada and Leon with its older buildings with balconies, wrought iron banisters, narrow streets, but also with a modern side, good department stores, restaurants, a nice riverside …
... very concerned. The postman left and later in his round what did he find in the cab of his van? Yes that's right, my passport! So he promptly delivered it to my mother-in-law. Good thing she mentioned it otherwise he'd be none the wiser! The consulate has confirmed that it hasn't been cancelled so no need for an emergency travel document. Good times! Tomorrow I have an easy twenty-five kilometres and five days left until I reach Santiago de ...
... there on a Sunday and it was of people that had driven up there in their car so a popular local tourist destination. The village is also the resting place of Don Elias Vilaña Sampedro the parish priest that dedicated his life to restoring the camino and it was his idea to mark the route with yellow arrows. Without him we wouldn't be on this route and a little lost. Tonight I'm staying in Triacastela and have a relatively easy 19km to look forward to for ...

This is a basic nice comfortable facility with everything that the casual traveler and pilgrim may need. Caution, somewhat steep for the cash strapped young pilgrim, not so for the more comfortable older pilgrim.
Excellent restaurant, and food, especially the Ensalada Mixta. Fixed priced menu €;12 for three course meal with bread and drink. I'd recommend it highly.
Not on the Camino, but not far from it. About 500 meters from the historic section, a few blocks from the commercial center and river walk area.
