From the beautiful coastal village of Muros, Galicia, NW Spain, we took a short bus trip to Santiago de Compostela. But first, I stopped at an ATM. Bad move - late on a Friday afternoon, after the bank closed for the weekend, the ATM ate my debit card. And we needed to leave Sunday and kiss the card goodbye.
Hence a new travel and cruising rule: Only use bank ATMs while banks are open, to have some chance of recovery. We get by OK with spares, but the "no drama" philosophy corollary requires "prevent easily preventable problems"

Outside, pandemonium ....
|Really loud, but no amplifiers|
|Horses appeared to be completely deaf, took no notice of the racket going on around them|
Meanwhile, there were fashionably dress wedding goers on a back street, a contrast from the more ruggedly dressed camino walkers.
