Santo Domingo is a two-tale town. The one about the chickens is too long to narrate here so it's best left to google. (Accompanying photo of the bird cage inthe cathedral). The story of Dominic who helped pilgrims in many ways including building a bridge and attained sainthood despite initially failing to be a monk, is more plausible.
On the Camino we often meet up again with people we came across earlier. In Santo Domingo we ran into the Italian lady who was nursing a painful foot back in Logrono and who obviously recovered well. And how excited we were when we met up with Cody and Kristy in Redecilla whom we knew from the Sydney pilgrims group!
