Any Pilgrims Stranded in France?


Likes Walking
Year of past OR future Camino
I know France is a big country but I've been reading on Facebook and here reports of pilgrims trying to get home from their camino in Spain. Today on the news here in France it has been announced that there will be a curfew this evening... France is following Spain.

If you are in France currently and need assistance or a bed or transport there are a number of pilgrims living here who can offer help.

My guess if everyone has made it home but just in case....

Macron hasn’t spoken yet. A curfew is rumored and it’s always the details that matter most.

The curfew is set to be put in place from midday today (cue a mad frenzy of panic-buying activities this morning ... ).

You're supposed to fill in a certificate even just if you need to do some food shopping or some walking for your health, but on the ground I really can't see that as being enforceable -- at least not in the more civilised remains of the old more provincial France where the norm is still made of little shops and local quasi-village life rather than vast hypermarkets and bland 21st Century anonymity.
