The Spanish love eating and they love socialising, usually at the same time. On a rainy day in Santiago de Compostella I ran into Alfonso, who was hungry after completing the Camino de Santiago (the St James Walkway, a 1200-year-old pilgrimage trail). He explained some of the nuances of Spanish culture over a "menu del dia" (menu of the day) at a small family restaurant. Amazing value for money: Three courses plus half a bottle of wine for 9 euros. Here Alfonso is about to try the lentil soup and I'm about to tuck into a Galician-style octopus starter. Great to meet you Alfonso!
