Santiago de Cathedral at night


After dinner, we took a stroll around the outside of the Cathedral.  It was our last evening together before Neil and Carolyn start slowly moving towards Italy, and before Jean and I head to Germany.

The pilgrim's shadow - cast by the small obelisk to its right - can only be seen at night (between the Praza das Praterias and the Praza da Quintana).

The other day, when we passed through here, a busker sang Ave Maria, and sounded as good as the best tenor anywhere.
