Does anyone know what organisation or charity about 12 - 20 women (I think they were Spanish) were walking the Camino Francés for last month? They were in Melide on 25th September. They were all wearing pink tops. Most had only one word in white on the front, only a few of them (perhaps only two) had more words written on them, but I cannot read them in my photo. The third line is obviously "Camino de Santiago". Thanks.

Too many and too often!
Would it be these ladies who are in recovery from breast cancer?

Many thanks, Bradypus. That would appear to be them. Google Translate seems to think that they were travelling with ten toilets (sanitarios) :). I saw them at the bridge at Furelos, just before Melide.

Google Translate does come up with some odd results. I am married to a nurse and I don't think she would welcome the translation much :cool:

Came across an identical group between Sarria (after Portomarin) and SdC.
As far as my spanish is good, they all survived breast-cancer and walk to celebrate and thank for their recovery.

Sanitarios in this sentence means nurses.
