I was very lucky to see the swinging of the Botafumeiro several times when I complete my Camino, ( there certainly were a lot of tour groups around Santaigo that weekend to pay for it!!)

I shot this on June 8 at noon using my small digitial camera to capture it on video...by then I had seen it three times...so I had learned to not turn the cameral sideways, not to constantly zoom in and out to follow its path and to stop saying wow each time it swung over my head and was able to capture those wonderful 5 minutes quite clearly.

With lot's of help, I have up loaded my video, for those who want to view it, at my You Tube site which can be found at

Be sure to click on the "watch in high quality" option...makes it very crisp...
