In Santiago de Compostela there are a few different kinds of people, some tired, sweaty, and relieved to have finally made it to the end of their journey on the Camino de Santiago, others busily walking through the stone streets to their jobs or homes or favorite bar, and some like me, who aren't at the end of a pilgrimage and aren't busily going from one place to another with a goal in mind, but are quietly sipping coffee, admiring the plants growing out of drain pipes and building cracks and wishing on window displays in Zara. Until I have a job, and I will have a job soon...although being American and working in Spain means there are miles of paperwork to complete... I'm going to enjoy being the person who can watch and wander and not be completely sure of what she is going to do in an hour.
