I'm not sure whether anyone else has posted this, but Asún (from Casa Solaina in A Rúa, and the Presidenta of the Asociacíon de Amigos do Camiño de Invierno por Valdeorras) is talking here about several things, amongst which I would highlight:
  1. the new albergue in A Rúa
  2. a possible pilgrims' office in the town
  3. how to avoid the dangerous road section
It's all in Asún's Spanish mixed with Gallego. Easy to understand for those of you who have a good command of the language; otherwise . . . . . . . .

Well, Peter, you know... I'll just have to come to Salamanca to understand all this :D :D :D

One thing this settles for me is the identity of the person who stopped their car to wish me a buen camino on the way out of A Rua, which touched me so deeply.
It was probably Asun. :)
I can't understand the broadcast, alas...but sure am glad to read form the article that they are considering re-routing the hair-raising entry into A Rua. It was short but way too 'interesting.'
