Today we thought we would check out the Casino, or one of them anyway. So we headed out for a walk, it was about 1km away. The traffic is crazy in Spain, just so much of it! It is like organised chaos! At the casino we needed to present our passports and be entered into the computer, same in all casinos in Europe.

... a little too much and we didn't enjoy it quite as much. Today we visited the cathedral at Santo Domingo, AKA the Chicken Church. Legend has it that a pilgrim in midieval times was wrongly accused of theft and he was hung. His parents mourned him and continued on to Santiago. On their return trip, they stopped back to see his grave, only to find him alive! They went to talk to the judge, ...
