Dave, please PM me re: your accommodation in Santiago. Thank you.

Dear Dave sorry to hear about your awful experience on the CF. I try to avoid it these days. But there are wonderful pilgrimage experiences to be had away from that maelstrom. Via de la Plata, Lebaniego, Salvador... all these places attract a completely different kind of pilgrim. I hope you can find a different route to Santiago in the future.
