#27 - On the hour 21:00

what's on the menu?

The first stop after deciding not to go on wandering aimlessly was Botafumeiro (which is the name of the incense burner in the cathedral). I had a glass of wine with a slice of Spanish omelette, for the princely sum of €2.00; and a cosy time watching the young girl (daughter of the family) coach a German man to speak Spanish. When I commented that surely Spanish was easier to learn than German she replied that the sounds were very difficult for some people to get their mouths around. 
In the bars & restaurants, the stone walls are irregular and have pennies, cents balanced on them; I assume to give thanks for arriving at the end of a pilgrimage - since mine was only a short walk from the hotel I didn't leave one.
