Hi everybody, seems we have a small party coming up ;-)

When: Monday 24th July 2017, starting at 20:00
Where: Travesia do Carme de Abeixo 4 in Santiago, for map and other info see http://egeria.house/contact/
What: Bring and share potluck dinner and then we walk together to see the fireworks which start at 23:30.

Attending so far: @SYates, @biarritzdon , @t2andreo, @MikeC plus wife, @bmcbride, @simonea + Marja, Nina from Denmark ...

If you are in Santiago and want to come, it would be great if you could write a quick note here, that way I know how much salad and bread I have to prepare ;-)

Buen Camino, SY

Although physically I may not be in Santiago de Compostela now nevertheless I yearn to hear the cathedral bells peal in celebration of the Feast of St James, July 25.

Within the city multitudes will convene and celebrate this historic Catholic event. Spanish royalty, government officials, church dignitaries, ordinary citizens, and, of course, thousands of actual pilgrims will be present. All will assemble to actively participate in age-old ecclesiastic pageantry and tradition.

Imagine if those present could be magically joined by all past pilgrims. Such a super-giant throng of celebrants would stretch back across one thousand years!

Whatever our ethnicity or beliefs, all pilgrims who walk or have walked the Camino share common bonds. All surely remember their personal thrill on arriving at last at the great cathedral, touching the hallowed stones, weeping with joy, and giving thanks as the great bells tolled.

At home in France I shall, as always, also remember and listen for those far-distant, celebratory bells.

Ultreia!

Hey SY, when do you need to know by? I'll likely be back in Santiago from Finisterre then but my flight leaves from Porto the next day so the 24th is still a little up in the air ITO where I'll spend the night.

We had a lot of fun! Only problem now - so much food and drink still in the house - so who wants to come tomorrow and help to empty the fridge?!

Happy Saint James Day everybody, SY
