I’ve been having great day! After breakfast I attended mass at the cathedral. I sat through nearly 2 hours but it was worth it when they swung the Botafumeiro – a gigantic incense burner – in a most exciting fashion! They really got it moving. It took about 5 men to control the thing as it hurtled from one side of the church to the other and I could hear the huge rope creaking and complaining as it swung. It was most exhilarating. Afterwards, I had lunch with some Camino Buddies and now I’m heading home.
I had no difficulty getting to the airport but it seems the same cannot be said of my plane! It’s delayed. I only have 1 hour 20 between flights so I’m rather worried. Although… It could mean a night in Palma de Mallorca…hmmm?
