The bus from Muxia to Santiago only goes twice a day, at 6:45 am and 2:30 pm. Unless it happens to be a festivo (holiday) in which case it leaves at 7:30 am. It was a Tuesday and we only found out by chance that it was a Galician holiday, Dia de Las Letras, to celebrate Galicia authors, but only ones who are dead apparently. Anyway everyone agreed that Tuesday was a festivo so we showed up around 7:15. Lots of people were there, all pilgrims who finished in Muxia and were going back to Santiago. We assume some of them did not get the word and were there at 6:45.
This was our last chance to be a part of a pilgrim group. We saw a few people we had seen on the trail or around Muxia.
