Santiago de Compostela

Braga is the religious center of Portugal, yet we left without even stepping foot into a church. This is the closest we came.

Then we boarded a bus to Santiago de Compostela, Spain. Perhaps because it was an international trip, an attendant gave out neck pillows, but the trip was only 3 hours.

It didn’t start raining in Braga until we got to the bus station. It rained during most of the trip, then quit just long enough for us to find our room. And what a room it is!! Top floor with the enclosed balcony.

Looking out toward the monastery.


I found fresh milk down the street, I have a Coke Zero and there’s a coffee maker in the room. We have pastries and nuts. We are looking forward to breakfast in the morning.

We didn’t have much time for wandering this evening, but I have fallen in love already with this place. We will not have enough time to absorb it this trip, especially with rain expected tomorrow and Monday, so we must come back.

A few twilight photos:



Tomorrow, breakfast on the balcony, then Santiago in the rain.
