It is very quiet in town this morning, I am the only one in the
internet cafe - have to pay but only 1.00eu an hour.

The Porta San Pedro is the old gate used by pilgrims
into the city. King Alfonso was the first to use the Camino Primitivo on
his visit to Compostela just after the discovery of the saint .
The stone is at the gate a reminder that the Camino Primitivo is just that
- the oldest pilgrim ´way´ on record.

The Porta Santiago is the way out of the city from the west front of the
Cathedral. I will, I hope be going out that way early tomorrow morning.
