    Look after your valuables

    This report by a pilgrim from St Jean: Just a reminder and warning to all pilgrims to keep ID and personal belonings on you at all times. I was in the Municipal Albergue at SJPP last night, and an Italian pilgrim was robbed while having a shower. He had left a small bag on his bunk...
