Arriving in Santiago

1st impressions of Santiago is that it is a lot like Barcelona & then I thought & like Lisbon. this tome suggests maybe more their period than their place. Labyrinths are synonymous with pilgrimages. And this place is a big one!
I was also thinking how as one of the great pilgrim locales, and since pilgrims accounts are thought to be the foundation of travel guides and travel literature – then j am at one of the founding places of tourism.
Have decided to stay here one day before heading off. Hopefully it will help me feel more grounded and less anxious. Also am feeling quite tired after all my ‘busyness’ in London so would rather like a rest day without having to do anything.
