I know this is a shot in the dark, but hey, maybe St. James will work a miracle for me.
I'm in Santiago de Compostela right now (Thursday, May 6), and spent the day doing a tiny portion of the famous walk and visiting the beautiful cathedral.
I'd love to talk to some pilgrims from the U.S. who are in town. If anyone fits the bill and happens to read this and would be available to meet me briefly around the cathedral tomorrow (Friday, May 7), let me know. Would love to hear your story.
Right now, I'm gonna go get me some tapas....
