We have been so incredibly fortunate so far...no rain in the Galicia under sunny perfect conditions. Cyrille mentioned that last year the Galicia had 170 consecutive days of rain!
We are staying at the Pension Casa Maruja...somewhat ok but incredibly cold with banana beds.
After showers, etc. yesterday we went for a bite to eat and cervezas...pulpo...or octopus a Galician delicacy was our tapas.
Before supper Marc, Cyrille and I went to a Farmacia (Paulo had to work on a Legal case) where Marc was looking to purchase Second Skin for his blistered feet! What happened next was one of the funniest , most pathetic, purchase attempts I have ever seen.
Nice lady pharmacist approaches us Hola..."can I help you" in Spanish. Marc looks at her and says "I'm Canadian". That's it folks...nothing else...not even an attempt to point at his feet and try to convey why he was there. The pharmacist looked nonplussed and smiled and walked away. Marc then proceeds to purchase something which as it turns out is not Second Skin at all! Only my brother could have pulled this scene off perfectly!
Yesterday's supper was a bit of a hit and miss affair for me...
|Supper - Minestrone soup...tasty but somewhat salty!|
|Galician stew...looked good however the salt simply overpowered everything!|
|Very tasty pear dessert!|
Yeah Brazil...I mentioned to Paulo on several times that my blog had zero page views (Blogger measures this) from Brazil. A few days ago he put out the call and voila I now have over 50 page views from Brazil...right up there in that time period with Canada! In total the blog has over 12,000 page views to date! I'm sure Brazil will win the 2014 World Cup as well in football/soccer!
After supper Paulo disappeared for a while...when he came back he gave Marc and I a picture...nice gesture on his part which we appreciated! The day in pictures...
Excitement is building for all of us...81 kms to go to Santiago to Compostela...then 90 kms to Finisterre...hard to believe that soon the long walk somewhere between 2,400 and 2,500 kms spanning 3 countries will be completed!
