  1. Lovely film. I especially liked the washing of the feet. I stopped at St Nicholas on my “contrary” Camino in 2010 and waited for 2 hours to get in only to find out they had problems with the plumbing and couldn’t take in pilgrims that day. The hospitalero made me a coffee and we had a wonderful conversation. Muchas gracias.
