We didn’t do much with our bonus day, but we enjoyed it immensely.
First, we visited the Museo das Peregrinacións (Museum of the Pilgrims) which addressed the history of pilgrimages to Santiago. We had thought the Camino de Santiago was one route, but there are several and have been many.
We wanted to get back to our room early, so we stopped by a supermarket to buy food to cook for dinner. I bought what I thought was ready-to-heat seafood paella. Instead, it was just packets of ingredients without the rice–and of course all instructions were in Spanish. I showed it to our hostess and said she could have it. I would share Roger’s lasagne.
A few minutes later, she returned from the local market with a box of rice. Then with Google Translate, she showed me how to prepare it. It was reasonably good.
Tomorrow, the taxi will appear at the ungodly hour of 5am to take us to the airport. We do not relish the notion of the 30-hour day facing us.
