del Norte - Day 38 (9-June-2016): Arzua to O Pedrouzo (19km)

We are still in "culture shock" over the increased number of pilgrims now that we have joined the Camino Frances route.  We estimate there are 500-1000 pilgrims per day compared to 40-50 on our del Norte route.  We called ahead last night so were able to book a bed at an albergue in O' Pedrouzo.  All the small hotels were fully booked but the albergue is quite nice.  We walked only 19km today and moved fairly quickly, keeping in pace with the crowds.  Our friends from Melbourne walked with us and are staying at the same place.  After arrival and cleaning up we did our laundry (quite a treat!) and then shared two bottles of wine with them on our patio area.  

Tomorrow we finish our Journey! 

Pretty typical walking conditions but it's difficult to give a view showing the lines of pilgrims walking.
