[Text message from Tom, June 11th:]

French rail strike today (Weds.). No news about [the other six pilgrims]. Did NOT arrive [at] Lourdes on plan. Called their Barcelona phone left message, no answer.


However …

Eventually they connected by phone, then at the train station, three or four hours later than planned. The group of six had some difficulties due to the train strike [although some trains were running]. “We had a combination of 3 trains that would take us to Lourdes [from Barcelona]. The first two went fine with no problem, but the third train couldn’t take us to Lourdes … the third train took us partway to Lourdes and we had to bus the last part (which took 3 hours). ” — from Garin
