I changed the title to make clear that this get together will be tonight. Hoping it catches the eyes of other forum members, there are a few out there in or around Santiago! I'm going to post a new thread with directions, the new 5pm time that everyone seems to prefer, later today. Enjoy your time in Santiago! Abrazos from Laurie
Edited to add a link to the thread showing directions and location. The Tertulia Cafe is very close to the cathedral and the (new) pilgrims office. Very easy to find. Just walk down the steps in front of the cathedral, keep walking till you come to a busier street with a stoplight, and the cafe is across the street on the left. Buen camino.
Well, the meetings were terrific but the Tertulia is a worry. I looked a bit closrr yesterday and the windows are boarded up on the inside...and there's no notice on the door. SY's favorite tapas place may be the more viable option...
Well, that's the best possible reason to close up shop for a few days.
I'm relieved, as there are many other possibilities rather than "Congratulations!"
Very selfishly it was too bad on the timing, though. I had been looking forward to the decent tea.
So for all of you who'll be in Santiago later...I hope you enjoy the tea/coffee/vino, the ambiance, and the company of fellow Forum members. And congrats to John Henry!

So, anybody then going to the Tertulia tomorrow? I will still be wandering around Santiago for a few days and always happy to meet fellow pilgrims. So far I have been spoiled by meeting @C clearly and MB, @Viranani , @purplesage and @ivar and some more of whom I am not sure if they are on the forum or not. Buen Camino, SY
