It’s a travel day. During “travel mode” I find that I turn my will and my life over to the care of the unknown:). Lisa, Vern, and I leave on a shuttle from the hotel. As the driver was helping us unload our backpacks he noticed the scallop shell hanging on my bag. In Spanish he said, “I have walked the Camino de Santiago 3 times”. His smile was so big and bright that I knew that he was happy to share, just for a moment, that he too was a Pilgrim.
Lisa had an earlier flight and was leaving from a different terminal than us. We had time to relax, have a snack, and update the blog.
Our plane to the first stop in the U.S., Miami.
This is the monitor that we watched in Madrid.
Arriving in Miami after clearing Customs and Passport Control.
I love this floor at the Miami airport.
By the time we arrived at the CitiGarden Hotel near the San Francisco Airport it was 1:30 a.m. We needed sleep more than we needed food. This is a great hotel near the airport that provides free shuttle service between the hours of 4:14 a.m. to 12:44 a.m. The CitiGarden also has a park’n fly program. The website is: citigardenhotel.com. I feel that this hotel is one of the best kept secrets in the Bay Area.
