Arriving in Santiago, Spain was the conclusion of my pilgrimage that began in St Jean Pied de Port on 9 January 2002 and ended on 6 February 2002. I had decided that while I was on the Camino that I would not drink any alcohol until I arrived into Santiago. I kept with this, the only exception being having about a glass of wine with 12 other pilgrims on one of our most fun nights in Mansilla de las Mulas! So as you might expect we had a great evening. Darryl, Caley, Jean-François and I all arrived together in the afternoon just as the Pilgrim's Office was opening. For the first 10 pilgrims that arrive each day a local parador honors them by feeding them with three meals a day for three days! What a great deal.
