... sang the hymns, such a beautiful voice, and near the end of the service they lit up the botafumeiro! It took seven men to pull the rope which activated the pulley which activated the botafumeiro. Absolutely spectacular and the best way to finish this leg of my journey! I felt so blessed by this experience as it swung past me through the aisle; the memory still evokes tears.

The service finished at around 1pm and we went outside with the smell of the ...

One can't help but be moved by the sight of tired but ecstatic ...

... met along the way. Sam did 70kms one day - we saw him at the end of it and he was still lucid and standing - what an amazing effort! The pilgrims mass is amazing. It's a real show. And the house is full. I have only attached a small portion of the video I took, I would hate to spoil it for anybody now contemplating the walk. We leave the Cathedral and head out into the masses, it's a nice day for a walk. Buon ...
