Breakfast at Parador ~ Day 80 ~ June 25, 2014

Weather: overcast, blue sky with clouds, humid, overcast; 65-75F

Santiago Parador offers complementary breakfast, lunch, and dinner to the first ten pilgrims. By chance, I was at the right place at the right time.

We were whisked through the reception area to the kitchen where waiters and cooks ignored us.  Curtly we were finally given trays of coffee and burned breakfast pastries to be taken to a “Pilgrim” dining room far removed from the Parador guests and working staff.  The arrangement lacked dignity.

If something sounds too good to be true, it usually is.
