I have not had time to write much about this, but here is a short resume of what is going on around Santiago.
Last night I saw 7 fires from my house, at 11pm (when it was dark) from my bedroom window I could see only fire and smoke on the horizon. At one time on Monday it looked like (from the smoke) that we had one big fire from Santiago almost to Padron (that is about 10 km). It was of course several small ones, but with the strong winds that we have (and no rain in the forecast) it spreads fast.
We got calls from friends at midnight last night crying because their house was about to go... at the end it went well, but in Rois (close to Padron on the way in on the camino Portuguese) 80% of that county has burned.
Monday night my neighbors called me to tell me that the village next to ours are calling for help to save their houses. We grabbed what we had and ran. After 5 hours of trying to take out the fire, we made it. If this fire would have continued my house would be next. The last hour we got some help from a fire truck and that made the difference. The fire trucks are driving non-stop from place to place and are doing a great job.
It is a disaster, it is a disaster, it is a disaster.
