... pilgrim contact these days. One evening there were ten of us in the same Ostello (n.b. the ostello at Cassio has to be the very best one of all). In addition to my French companions, I've seen a lot of two young Spaniards who shared the river taxi ride with me. We've also enjoyed the company of two sets of French cyclists on consecutive days, who would normally pass in a flash but who are of an age to take the mountain slopes more slowly.
