These are sad days for Galicia.
Just two years after finally the forgotten north west corner had been given a reasonable rail link,
a major disaster happened, just outside Santiago de Compostela.
A train travelling from Madrid to Ferrol derailed at high speed in a corner just outside Santiago.
About 1/3 of the estimated 200+ travellers have died. In a small close knit community this is felt like a major bereavement.
All festivities have been halted / cancelled and 7 days of mourning for whole Galicia have been declared.
The 25th of July, normally a day of festivities and happiness, will never feel the same again.
Nuestros sentimientos están con las familias, los amigos y las personas afectadas por esta tragedia.
