Day-158, Monday, Sep 26, Santiago, Spain

Today was special in that I met a Tour Group of 21 from Poland staying at our Albergue Roots and Boots. One of the ladies had herself walked through Poland and she and the tour guide got all excited when I showed them my credentials from Poland. 

Then Bob and I did some window shopping before attending our second pilgrim mass and capturing, but of course, the swinging botafumeiro (only 1 sec) and a group photo of the Polish Visitors.

    ich gratuliere Dir von ganzem Herzen zu Deinem tollem Camino! Es sieht so aus, als ob Du einiges abgenommen hättest?
    Grüße auch an Deine Familie und einen guten Flug zurück

      Ja, ich hab ungefähr 10 Kilo abgenommen. Die kommen leider allmählich wieder zurück!! Danke für die lieben Wünsche.
