Sitting in Santiago Bus Station

Currently I’m sitting in the Santiago Bus Station. I’m engaged in one of my favourite activities – people watching. Some are lying on hard benches, others are wandering about in a regular pattern and another is writing a blog and fending off his wife’s requests to play Scrabble.

This must have one of the highest ratios of back packing people – especially older ones, in the world. They are either going to or coming back from the Camino to Santiago. You can tell those who have been. There is less of a spring in their step. They have a more jaded look. But this doesn’t hide the fact that they have achieved a personal goal. Those going are still bright eyed and bushy tailed.

We are waiting to get tickets for a bus to our starting town. We’ve missed the the previous bus and are hoping there are enough seats left on this one.

We have made a decision to roll with the punches and enjoy our time together whatever obstacles come along. We have a daily plan of prayer, Bible reading and reflection. So hopefully tomorrow the real journey begins.
