Go Pilgrims Office!


Staff member
I pass by the pilgrims office a few times per day, and have done so for the last year. One thing that worried me last year, when I saw the lines at the pilgrims office was... how will it be holy year?

I am really surprised, they are really doing a great job...they are volunteers and they have held back the lines... this year, I have not seen lines out the door at the office (only early in the morning when the doors are closed and the line starts there). And last year, lines out the door was the norm.

My gut feeling is that there will be more pilgrims in August. But so far: Go pilgrims office!

By the way.... will walk from Monte do Gozo tomorrow with some people from Xacobeo... I know...dont laugh.....turegrino... will be fun though.

How many sellos do you need for this particular journey!

Ouch. I lost a quarter. I had bet that today would have more than 2,000 pilgrims today. I just missed; there were 1,933, the busiest day this year. No wonder there were lines. I cannot imagine the poor Pilgrim Office volunteers processing that number of pilgrims. Anyone want to guess when they will exceed 2,500 in a day?
