We made it.
Started walking at 6:30 this morning and arrived inSantiago at 11:0 am. with a light drizzle.
Waited to the pilgrim office and waited in line

for one hour to get our Compostela. and are now in a Pension right on the Cathedral Plaza. Booked the train to Pamplona for tomorrow morning and from there we will take the bus to St. Jean. Did some sightseeing and will attend mass at 7:30 this evening.
The town is very busy with limping pilgrim except the younger crowd, thy are ready for party time. 
Hugs to all our Family and Friends 
From Grateful Pilgrim Greti and Norbert
