Franca, our perfect host at the Pilgrims accommodation last night. Nothing was too much trouble! But Franca had us all out of the Ostello by 7.45am – clearly her time between 8am and 3pm each day was very precious!
It was a very foggy morning as we set off on another rice paddy and corn growing walk. It was very humid with our raincoats on but raining so hard that we couldn’t take our coats off.
These were the Pilgrims from Spain. Canada and Germany we’ve been with these past few days. Must say we’re now meeting up with many Pilgrims – so unlike the lonely trek across France and Switzerland to date.
On a bathroom stop we noticed that the fittings seemed to have a kangaroo logo on them so suspect the supplier is an Italian/Australian.
Approaching Garlasco today we noticed these fresh flowers at the roadside chapel. Seems someone died recently and the family in the district brought these flowers to the chapel to commemorate the life of the deceased!
