A word of caution at the Lugo bus station. Or any station for that matter. Following my career in the Marines, I did five years in Law Enforcement. I would have done more but 9-11 got in the way and I was called back to active duty responsible for analysis of the threat to Mid-Atlantic coastal ports and harbors. So I can pick out a bad guy in a crowd.
Waiting in Lugo for my connection to Sarria, I was approached by a “pilgrim”, well dressed and carrying a pack that any seasoned Camino walker would be proud of. By the way he was swinging it around, it may have weighed 5 lbs. He approached me, said he was on Camino, had a sick child at home in Burgos and was short of funds. Could I help?
I did not!
After I boarded the bus, I saw him hovering near the bus while the baggage compartment was still open. An easy “snatch and grab” once a pilgrim is seated.
My suggestion, add your pack as the driver readies to close the compartment. Or, make sure your pack is well in the middle with other baggage added closer to the hatch.
Buen “all aboard” Camino
