Yesterday evening I ran into some of our amigos del camino who fell a day behind us. They reported that on the evening of the 18th three rucksacks were stolen from the albergue in Padron. One was stolen from Klaus (from Germany) who was travelling with his 73 year old mother, Carmen, who is Spanish. Klaus was lucky enough to have slept with his money and passport. Much less fortunate was one of our amigas from the Czech Republic who had her passport and 300 euros (and one assumes her credencial) in her bag. Carmen said that the hospitalera left the door unlocked during the evening, which allowed the thief to gain entry. She added that the hospitalera was not at all helpful about the situation and nor were the police. She was horrified to discover that there have been previous (and recent) rucksack thefts from this same albergue but that neither the police nor the hospitalera seemed motivated to do anything about it. I know that there are always two sides to every story, so the police and hospitalera might well have their own version of events. However, the fact remains that three people had their rucksacks stolen and this wasn´t a one off theft. I do wonder what type of person would steal a rucksack from a peregrino!I guess that this should stand as a reminder that everyone needs to be careful about keeping their money, passport and credencial in a safe place at night.
