Day 17 - 18 Maundy Thursday / Good Friday

Later, knowing that everything had now been finished, and so that Scripture would be fulfilled, Jesus said, “I am thirsty.” A jar of wine vinegar was there, so they soaked a sponge in it, put the sponge on a stalk of the hyssop plant, and lifted it to Jesus’ lips. When he had received the drink, Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.

According to Matthew, at the moment Christ “gave up his spirit...the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom”

This marks the finish of the Camino for these walkers .  Day 17 we drove out to Finisterre .. the place where the land finishes. and they walked back towards Muxia . Peg was able to end her journey at a beautiful beach along the route   we also toured out to Muxia this morning to the official 0km marker
