Quiet At 10 p.m.

Rules get broken everywhere. And the camino is no exception to this. Lights out and doors locked at 10p.m. Quiet after 10 too.

I witnessed the lack of respect by one young couple who arrived in the alberique by 9 or later. The two sat around eating and chatting and then turned on the washer with no regard for anyone. When I heard them say they were going to put on the dryer I protested. But they ignored me and I protested even louder “Don’t turn on the dryer. You are being very disrespectful. There is no noise or lights after 10p.m. I can’t sleep with all your noise.”

Everyone was snoring except me but I would not be ignored! The last protest got to them and they climbed into their bunks. In the morning there was water everywhere from all the dripping clothes. But I was alive and rested and no one had sabotaged my backpack while I snored.

I had survived another night on the camino!
