    Guitarist just before Astorga

    Just before Astorga, on the top of the hill, theres a guitar player who sings songs about the Camino. I think his name is Jose Jiminez. () I was wondering if anyone had a link to a site where I could stream or buy online some of his songs?

And the cost was very reasonable: 30 euros for an hour (although he worked on me for 75 minutes and...
