Portuguese, Primitivo, Norte. Hospitalera
Hello from San Pedro de Rates, for many the first "real" night out of Porto. I'm in my second week as hospitalera with Diane from Houston. It's very soggy, and expected to be all week. Last night we had 6 guests, tonight 4. Last week we averaged 30 a night. When you walk absolutely affects your camino experience (I have walked spring, summer and fall.) We spent Saturday in Fatima and yesterday in Coimbra, both uncrowded. We hope you will come say Ola soon.

St. Gallen to Muxia
Interesting news. We were in Alpriate (first night out of Lisbon) the first part of September and were full all but one night. Most nights we had to call ahead and send pilgrim by taxi. We also stamped credential of pilgrims just passing through. Sounds like things have slowed.

Portuguese October 2019
Hi - David from California here. I enjoyed your Portuguese soup 2 weeks ago along with the missionary kids and Nils, the noisiest sleeper any of us ever came across! The joys of the Caminho! You and Diane were great hosts, thank you.
