Sunset at the end of the world.
The end has come.... I wish I had something really awe insipring to tell, but the journey has been more than I can sum up in words. I arrived here in Santiago on June 2nd, with my good friend from the camino, Pablo. Hi Pablo! It was incredible, we walked up to the catherdral and I felt so happy to have made it. What a journey, I cannot really describe how it was, but all of you who have been on it know. The hard parts, and the days I thought I might not make it have already started to fade away and all that´s left is the joy and freinds and things I learned. Yesterday I spent part of the day in Santiago de Compostela, and then drove out to Finisterre with Pablo, his dad Manolo, and another lady from Norway Gulru. That was great too! We sat at the end of the world and just thought back on the whole experience. Then we burned some clothes! Its a pilgrim tradtion to get there and burn your socks or something. Today Im off to Madrid to meet my mom and travel around Spain until I go to Ireland to visit some more friends from the Camino! I am offically coming back on June 25th, and I cant wait to see everyone in California!
