Hello fellow pilgrims. Yesterday I tested positive for Covid. I immediately booked into a hostel/hotel right on the Camino to begin my period of isolation/quarantine. It feels like the worst cold I’ve ever had but it’s holding steady. I’ve had 4 vaccinations and am in good shape. I have a strategy if things turn even a little bit worse.
This hostel/hotel has no kitchen, no microwave, no vending machines.
Like I told family back home, this is a great place to isolate. The only 3 things I miss are breakfast, lunch, and dinner!
I was wondering if there might be a somebody that might be able to drop off something to eat just outside the front door here as you pass through Estella. If so, we could connect by phone or internet and I’ll pick it up just as soon as you’re gone.
My supply of acetaminophen and ibuprofen are also running low.
I’ll be happy to reimburse by paypal if someone decides they can do this.
I would be so appreciative of this kindness. I hesitate to ask because I know many of you respond on a daily basis to needs in your communities and the Camino is a retreat for you.
Also—I’m providing a warning to those just beginning their Camino: no one anywhere are wearing masks, the albergues are full, no precautions taken anywhere. The pandemic has been going for over 2 years and HERE is where I caught it!!! Yikes.
