Sept 21 continued......

This afternoon we saw 2 brides outside in the square in front of our hotel.....what an amazing backdrop for their photographs. Then we saw another bride come down the grand staircase inside---we are checking from our balcony regularly as the scene is set below in the garden for the ceremony of one of the couples.  Jan is very interested as she will be welcoming 2 daughter in laws in the coming year with the excitement of choosing gowns.  Alas, we are not sure what happened but we never saw another thing to do with any weddings.  At about 8:30 we set out for dinner, as we exited the hotel we saw guests arriving, all dressed to the nines!
We strolled back over to the cathedral area and chose an interesting bar for a glass of beer and were given an interesting tapas was 4 individual little cups of some kind of thick tomato base with bits of what we thought were octopus in it.....but we really had no was tasty though! It was a great bar for people watching young and old, women here have the most amazing shoes and clothing, even the older ladies are dressed quite fashionably, and we look like mere pilgrims! Next we enjoyed pizza and vino tinto at the same restaurant as last night, Bocadillo, 2 bottles of red and 2 pizzas was a grand total of 40 euros! We stayed to watch the light show that was projected on the church, we had front row seats.  THe show dipicted the history of the city of Leon in pictures with grand music to accompany it.  Home again for a wonderful sleep in the delux hotel!
