Santiago de Compostela

Arriving at the square in front of the majestic cathedral in Santiago de Compostela, I sat down and watched pilgrims happily reaching their final destination.  I could not share the same exhilaration given I had not walked or biked to get this sacred spot. I was only passing by Santiago, on the way to Pontevedra for a swimming championship.  But for some moments, I was lucky enought to feel that sacred atmosphere (Photo: Santiago de Compostela: Spain 2011).

Al llegar a la plaza frente a la majestuoso catedral de Santiago de Compostela, me senté y observé la alegría de los peregrinos llegando a su destino final. No podía compartir el mismo regocijo, ya que no había hecho el camino para llegar este lugar sagrado. Estaba de paso por Santiago, en el camino a Pontevedra para un campeonato de natación. Sin embargo, para algunos momentos, tenía el suerte de sentir esa atmósfera sagrada (Foto: Santiago de Compostela: España 2011).
