Interesting stats. Wonder why the number of pilgrims has more than doubled for April/07. Also, it's so nice to belong to the exclusive age group that has the least number of pilgrims, don't ask me why :!:
“During the month of April, 7010 pilgrims were received at the Pilgrim’s Office. The number of pilgrims in the year 2005 during the same period was 3307. Of those pilgrims, 2903 were women and 4107 men. 5855 pilgrims arrived on foot, 1119 by bicycle, 35 on horseback and 1 in a wheelchair…3053 pilgrims were younger than 30 years old; 3397 were between 30 and 60 years old; 559 were aged above 60 years old."
