Oh my goodness. And now you have judged me quite harshly without any knowledge of my intentions, my knowledge of this albergue’s rules (I knew only what j wilhaus had written about turning away the young men), and call into question, for some reason, my experience, background in life and so forth. Sounds rather troll-y, but I figure you must mean well in some way. I’ll continue reading the interesting responses in this thread, although I might select the “ignore” option to avoid further personal jabs.There is a real easy answer to why these young men were not allowed to stay in the albergue. The albergue, according to Gronze states that it is for "Pilgrims" only. If they were pilgrims and did not have a credential they could have asked for one. It seems to me that your reply is as full of judgements regarding the actions of @J Willhaus. He and his wife devote a great deal of time and energy to help pilgrims by volunteering in albergues. They were just following the rules of the set down by the albergue. Like it or not there are many people who see a donativo as a free place to stay and to just take and not give. I am sure they used their judgement and the guidance from the rules to make this call. There were lots of other places for these people to stay. You have a right to your opinion but as I said your comments are full of judgements.
I have no idea what you are really trying to say here but I grew up in the 1960's in the Bronx in one of those "grimy" neighborhoods with a few burnt out storefronts and some drug dealing not only on the "regular" but every day of my life where we had lots of moving experiences just playing or running away so we didn't get our butts kicked in or worse. "Grimy" to you was home for me.
Donativos are for pilgrims if that is what the donativo's mission statement is.
Not trolling anyone here but expressing my opinion as you have yours.
La etapa es Pirineo puro, con todos los atractivos paisajísticos y naturales de la alta montaña; arrancamos en el collado fronterizo de Somport, a 1.632 metros de altitud, donde podemos encontrar nieve y hielo hasta bien entrada la primavera, y descendemos por el valle del río Aragón hasta Jaca...www.gronze.com
