The weather has been atrocious these last few days, almost constant rain. And the tent is beginning to leak – hardly surprising as it must now be thirty years old.
Normally pilgrims don’t stop when it’s raining. Perhaps it’s just too much trouble to divest themselves of their wet ponchos. But today ten ladies from Nice stopped to take their lunch in the tent. There was only just room for them all – see the picture below. Then three more pilgrims, two men and another lady, also stopped. They had to take their lunch under the pavillon.
