Reply ↓ Camino Pilgrim Nev July 30, 2014 • 6:45 PM Yes, I actually offended on behalf of all pilgrims 🙂 Reply ↓ Argelia Truluck. July 30, 2014 • 10:43 PM In my humble opinion: Perhaps before when there were not such large numbers of people passing through, nothing was said or done…but as years pass and more & more locals wake up to find an ” unsolicited gift ” left with more frequency,probably near where they grow their food, [ even if not just an unpleasant sight…] maybe we can understand THEIR perspective on the issue. Pilgrims are just passing by…They LIVE there… So it seems like a legitimate and not exactly disrespectful request. Again ,that is only my humble opinion… [ Sent from San Francisco, California.] Reply ↓ linaprima July 30, 2014 • 11:02 PM Thought I would comment in Spanish as well. En mi humilde opinion: En tiempos historicos, y a travez de los anos los ” lugarenos” o’ personas locales no se quejaban, porque quizas’ los numeros de viajeros y peregrinos transitando por sus tierras no eran tan numerosos como en estos tiempos…Pero al pasar del tiempo levantarse de manana, para encontrar “un regalito no solicitado”, probablemente cerca de donde crecen su hortaliza y alimentos,[ y aun que no fuese cerca de sus alimentos,] igual algo no muy placentero con que ” toparse” en su propiedad… Quizas’ podamos entender un poquito la PERSPECTIVA DE ELLOS AL RESPECTO… los Peregrinos solo van de paso…ellos tienen que vivir al li’… Asi que me parece legitimo y NO falto de respeto que pidan la gente busque un lugar adecuado para hacer sus necesidades biologicas…Repito, esta es solamente mi humilde opinion.

Pilgrims are just “passing by”, the residents LIVE there… So it seems like a legitimate and not exactly disrespectful request to post a sign… [ Sent from San Francisco, California.] Reply ↓ Camino Pilgrim Nev July 31, 2014 • 5:20 AM Hi! Thank you for contributing to the post with your comments. I do understand your opinion, but it is just that this sign was one of many on show to all in one particular village on the less trodden section of the Camino; on the alternate route from Triacastela to Samos. I think there were 10 signs in total. Pooping sign overkill 🙂 Wishing you a great day! Nev 🙂 Reply ↓ Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
