The promised land! Earlier we got our Compostela and just got out of the Pilgrim’s Mass. That was spectacular. There was Romanesque architecture complete with squinches. We had communion which was a general mob scene but good. There must have been a thousand people there. Then they did the big incense burner that swings the length and height of the cathedral.
So we are catching some food and drink before afternoon activities. I have to get back into the Cathedral to talk to St James which is the important thing. Have to pick up a few gifts here also.
I am crawling at this point, pretty exhausted. Have the feeling that I will collapse when I let myself. Will be on the plane tomorrow and can sleep then.
Angela Merkel (sp?) is here today and we have a meeting later today. Something about foreign policy. I’ll have get my people on it.
OK for now, Phil.
