Andrew and I have chosen the destination for a weekend trip in June: Santiago de Compostela, a small town in the northwestern part of Spain, in the Galicia region, and the final destination of many pilgrims who walk the Camino de Santiago de Compostela, a pilgram trail. It's the kind of town where museum discounts are offered to senior citizens, students, and pilgrims. It looks beautiful.
As we looked through stacks of Santiago hotel brochures we'd picked up at the Tourism Expo this weekend, trying to choose a place to stay, we noticed that many of the nicer hotels listed "piped music" as one of the room amenities, along with linens, mini bar, private bathroom, and so forth. Piped music? Like Musak? This is apparently some kind of widely-accepted nonsensical translation of something, but we're not sure what. Radio? CD player? The hotel we chose doesn't offer piped music, so I'll have to do some outside investigation to find out what this is.
