I am staying in a pension once again. What would have been a good start was marred somewhat when I woke up. I had set my iphone on recharge overnight. But when I awoke it seemed that both the power socket and my conversion adapter seemed different. Like something was missing. I looked for the missing bit. Turned the rom upside down but could find nothing. Thought I had destroyed someone’s property plus my own. Couldn’t work it out. Didn’t know whether to mention it or not as I didn’t think my host would be able to help. At breakfast my host gave me several shells from Finesterre and a prayer card. Went back to my room ready to leave and decided to have a last look at the powerpoint socket. It looked different. Then I realised why. Half my conversion adaptor was stil inside it! I had a little difficulty getting it out as it was connected to live power but managed. Then I put the 2 parts of my conversion adapter together again and all was well.
The bus left at 11.45am so there was some waiting. I had a walk around Finisterre. It was market day and the 3rd day of gorgeous weather. The bus trip took 3 hr 15 min. It goes around all the bays and only heads inland towards the end. The bus stops half way and you change busses for the final half. A little scary last year when it stopped on a lonely wharf at 9pm and I was asked to get off the bus!
I arrived at Santiago about 3.15pm and made my way to the old town. Without wifi and my Vodafone allowance almost used I was unable to book ahead so am going to stay where I have previously. I hope to do the essential things next, eg book transport to Madrid, and then experience Santiago.
