Interesting. My story: I got into bed at the municipal albergue in Grandas de Salime and found myself staring up at the figure-8 drawn on the bunkbed slat above my head. Two nights later in the municipal in O Cadavo I was making my bed and I suddenly felt this energy that hit me like a punch in the gut, and I knew that figure-8 was right over my head. I looked up, and it was, again drawn on the bunkbed slat.
