Camino de Santiago

Camino: Day 27 – Monday May 4, 2009
San Carlos to Santiago ( Walk – 5km)

It was only a short stroll in the morning to the Cathedral in Santiago and my Camino De Santiago was all over.  I got my certificate of completion and went to the Pilgrims mass at lunch.  Santiago de Compostela is a beautiful old city with lots of small streets meandering in all directions. The Cathedral was hard to find as it is not built on high ground, like in other cities. I kept getting lost as the Cathedral spires are not at all prominent.  It added to a strange feeling of sadness, loss and dislocation that has come over me this afternoon. I feel that something is missing.
