A swell city

"This is a swell city--Santiago de Compostela--clean and nice like Pamplona and cockeyed beautiful with a wonderful cathedral swell old buildings and grand hill country around."

Ernest Hemingway in letter 21 August 1927.
From The Letters of Ernest Hemingway vol. 3

Aaand... camino sketches 17

 Finisterre. End of the world, end of the journey.

This sketch is from my notebook, NOT my sketchbook. There's a big difference. It was a very quick sketch, trying to capture the sight of Santiago in the morning fog, seen walking out of the city. They're working on one of the towers, so it was covered in scaffolds.
