- Camino(s) past & future
- Sept-Nov (2015)
Staying in the Albergue Seminario Menor in Santiago with hundreds of other pilgrims you can feel a good vibe of other pilgrims who has just completed the Camino. Without thinking that someone would steal in the Seminario was beyond me as I plug in my Samsung tablet/phone to be charged along with many others stacked at the charging station in the room that housed thirty beds. Well there were thieves among us as three cell phones , along with the charger were stolen between 11pm and mid-nite on October 14th, 2016. I wish I was more observant as the thief just happen as I was returning to the room. Gone are the photos and memories of my Camino. I felt just as bad for fellow pilgrims that lost their cell phone as well. Everything can be replaced but that sense of security that I always felt with fellow pilgrims. Who would be so mean or desperate to be among pilgrim and steal? So, in close, do not let your guard down as non pilgrims are beginning to be in the mix with pilgrims that did the Camino. And as I was told by others that thief happens more often and not reported at the Seminario, be careful.
