The albergue is serviceable, but smells moldy. The caretakers (a Dutch couple) are very nice and helpful, however. We make sure to donate 7 Euros to the albergue. Later we read that the largest bill that O Cebreiro has ever received is 5 Euros! Could it have been ours?
Since the hospitalera is taking a sick boy to the Red Cross when we arrive, it takes us a while to check in. After a restless night's sleep (the snores of others: the albergue is packed), I wake up during the night feeling very sick (uh-oh!).
