Starting with a cold (-2deg) morning, I arrived in Santiago de Compostela on 4th Dec in bright sunshine. Within 20mins, they let off fireworks in celebration (ok, well maybe it was for something else). Despite 800kms, I am still very "vertically efficient" (not grown even 1cm), am still possessed of more rotundity than ideal (shrunk by insufficient cms) and am more than unkempt normal. But I don't care. Because I just walked across Spain !
