God has sent aid to me in the form of two feisty German women. Ushie and Elke are walking with us now. For some weird reason, in these last hundred kilometers there are less albergues, private hotels and hostels, and fewer bars than just about anywhere on the camino, in spite of the increased numbers of peregrinos. People are forced to rush early to get a bed or they are turned away and must travel further. Elke says maybe that is part of the camino-- to make the "pilgers" suffer more. Anyway, she and Ushie have a special book of information on private habitaciones and they have been booking ahead. They are helping Truus and me to do the same. Otherwise, I think I would be in misery! Tonight we are in a very nice private double room with a giant window and a great view. Four days to Santiago!
