    We left approx 5 to 6 Kms out of ARZUA heading towards SANTIAGO DE LA COMPOSTELA
    Approx 30/32kms
    PLEASE NOTE
    This section of the Camino is not as easy as it looks!!!!!!
    There are lots of hidden steep climbs to go,
    Please don't get caught in the hype,that's it's our last day,PLEASE BE AWARE!!!!!!
    The route sounds easy but it's not, you know have 760kms behind you ,certain parts of your body will hurt,
    There are plenty of stopping off places for drinks food etc, the route is simple to follow,
    You will through SALCEDA and SANTA IRENE easy to follow,
    Plenty of accommodation/food And drink at PEDROUZO(No need to stock up)
    About 3kms after leaving PEDROUZO the sound of aircraft taking off will hit you!!,
    The route still has a sting in its tail,until you reach MONTE DEl GOZO,
    This is photo time
    This is where centuries ago pilgrims stopped 4kms from SANTIAGO,to wash and clean there clothes ready for the cathedral blessing,
    As you drop down into the suburbs of SANTIAGO please keep to the proper yellow arrows
    Why!',
    The curise ship mob are bused in 5Kms from the cathedral, with there guide,it's so easy to follow them DONT
    You can spot them a mile away, clean boots ,clothes perfect, and all there excess luggage is carried around there waist( get me drift)
    On arrival to the SANTIAGO CATHEDRAL you must go through the old arch And enter
    The plaza de O radio
    We never stopped crying , meeting fellow pilgrims, we had walked with, for 791kms,
    We have booked a private studio,yes time on our own, for 5 days,
    I know what you are thinking , and your right!,,!!!
    Nowt but SLEEP!!!!!!!
