July 5: Melide – Santiago de Compostela
Monte do Gozo, a statue built in conmemoration of the pope visit in 1982, on a hill above Santiago. It was raining, I still had to go 5 km and cried like a little child about the whole way. It takes time for the mind to realize certain key moments and to understand that Santiago de Compostela was not any longer a distant dream. I entered the first hotel, closed the door, shut down the cel phone and just wanted to be for myself.
