We have reached Santiago!
I've a lot to write, but the girls, Hugh, and I are going to take the night off to celebrate. I'll post some photos now and give a full report tomorrow evening.
Thanks again to all those who sent emails and posted messages on my blog, Facebook page, and Trail Journals account. We appreciate your good wishes and we thank you all for your support.
We are just a bit short of our five thousand dollar goal for GirlVentures - I believe our total stands at $4600 (that includes a fifteen hundred dollar donation that will be sent by May 1). Therefore, if you've enjoyed our blog and would like to contribute to an outstanding female-empowering nonprofit organization, then please donate whatever you can to GirlVentures. Use the links on my blog..all of your money will go straight to the organization. (I think we have met our five thousand dollar goal for Global Fund for Women...I'll have final totals when we return to the States next week.)
A few pictures for now - more to come tomorrow.
The girls were excited to leave our Casa Rural this morning...they looked forward to arriving in Santiago.
Trees, beautiful trees!

Santiago on the horizon!

I'll post more tomorrow. The girls are happy, healthy, and looking forward to exploring more of the city tomorrow.
Unfortunately, we lose Hugh tomorrow morning since he has to fly back to Boston. He's been with us for a little more than half of our Camino and we've loved having him with (and we will miss him badly after he leaves!).
'Til tomorrow evening,
