The road is flat and very few hills I seemed to be gliding along and arrived 70 Klms later at Mossiac. A stop for the pilgrims going to Santiago de Compostela a pilgrimage to St. Jacques de Compostelle. The story I was told by the pilgrim who was staying at the (delightful rooms at reasonable prices) told me is that St. James one of the disciples lived here and this is one of the three Catholics places (Rome & Jerusalem)  in the world you must visit. Just like Muslims going to Meca, I went with the pilgrim & the owners to a service with singing by the six nuns who make the city of 12,000 better as a result of their contribution. The Abby has unique statues for the 12 place of the cross instead of original paintings; Beautiful. The pilgrim is the girl in blue with walking stick a vetinarian & new mother with a 9 month baby walking the Chemin while dad cares for the baby.
