Westward Ho!

No, I ain a ho. It´s a figure of speech, OK?

This just in: The Pilgrimage Hostel Volunteer HQ in Logroño needs someone TOMORROW at the pilgrim albergue in Ponferrada, right on through the end of the week. They´re a big place, about 140 beds, and they usually have three people there to watch the place. They´re down to one person through the end of the week, so they´re desperate enough to call in the likes o me. And like Paddy says, "why not? This is why you came here, innit?"

Well, not exactly. But it surely will take my mind off things.
If you´re a pilgrim coming westward over the mountains of Leon, stop by and say hello. I will there through Thursday, or maybe Saturday. Logroño flies by the seat of its pants sometimes, especially here toward the end of the big pilgrim season. Maybe there will be time and resources to post blogs from there, a view to the Daily Life of the Volunteer Pilgrim Hospitalera?

We shall see. There are two trains running tomorrow, and I´ll catch one of them.
I never much cared for Ponferrada, but I´ll keep an open mind. It´s a good-size city, so maybe I can buy a functioning mobile phone there. It´s got a big templar castle in the middle. And it´s gotta beat the heck out of another week of Drivers Education.

PS: Monday morning update. YEEHAW! I only missed TWO on the last exam, which means I PASSED! woohoo! Here´s the word from Trafico:
