My friend Nuria is guiding me through the old streets of the city, lined by a mixed of houses made of stones or painted white. The old lady at the window waters the red flowers hanging on the little balcony. The city is actually quite small…but every corner has history printed in the statues that have been placed there.
The Cathedral is huge, magestic and culturally elegant!
There is a man welcoming the visitors of the Cathedral. He is dressed with the typical pilgrim uniform and with the traditional pilgrims accessories, the shell.
From everywhere there are travelers who just arrived: some walking and others by bike, some big groups, some are alone in this journey. It feels good to watch their expressions of happiness and relief for finally arriving at the destiny!
Keep on exploring the city, we found THE Tree that decides for you. People from Santiago say “everybody should ask this tree before going to university!“
The rules are simple: turn your back to the tree, no peeking, you should point your finger randomly at the tree. The course that you get should be the one to study!
When we ask for drinks, they always bring TAPAS, a mix of food to snack, which is always a surprise what is going to be served as it changes between establishments: some tortilhas, some bocadilhos, peanuts, crisps,…
And here we stay for a bit longer, enjoying a good evening talking and tasting the second day of the summer!
Better than traveling is traveling with friends!
