Boy I am so glad my walking companion and I decided to stay two nights in this wonderful cathedral town. I truly have never seen anything like this amazing cathedral and the beautiful squares that surround it. I will let the images speak for themselves for the most part.
The tour of this amazing structure can be downloaded onto a smartphone and….I managed perfectly!
I really have never in all my life seen so much history, art, splendour anywhere!
Nothing is perfect in this world of course and the fly in the ointment was that my backpack got delivered to the wrong place and then shipped to the Post Office. Like a big girl I followed my app to a majestic building over a bridge infested with statues and had a surprisingly effective argument with a clerk in Spanish . She insisted it was not there but I managed to convince her that based on an earlier phone call it was. I emerged triumphant with it slung on my back and staggered back to the very comfortable room. I am sharing with Ana. She could not go to the cathedral this am as her feet are in a bad way and needed medical attention. We had a lovely time at the Pilgrim’s mass and a short stroll around the old town. The over- the-top chapel in the cathedral featured this statue of St Dominique with his chickens. The story another time. And so to bed
PS a confession …we took the bus this morning for 45 minutes thus saving two days walking. Our weakness was forgiven by my finding someone’s wallet in the bus and handing it in to the driver
