There is an article in el Correo today, regarding albergues beeing quite full these days.

This picture is of the albergue at Arca, in O Pino (El Correo Gallego)

Most alberuges open at 13.00, and some report of beeing full at 13.20. The albergue at O Pino has 120 beds, but the last few days they have had 210 guests.

Has the total number of pilgrims picked up? I remember a month or so ago that someone (probably you or Peter) published a link to an article showing that the number was down compared to last year.

that was in July :) Numbers appear to have picked up again in August. We will know next month when the Pilgrim Office publish their monthly stats. A factor in recent weeks has been the forest fires, which caused people intending to walk the Camino Portugues to divert to the Frances instead, making the latter even more crowded.
