Journal Entry:
Spent the day (what was left of it by the time I got up) exploring the museum complex. It's huge. St James the apostle is entombed there, which makes it quite the destination, in other words very crowded. Had a fantastic dinner, mostly fantastic because it was huge (and cheap) and I hadn't had anything to eat since the very small dinner the night before.
