At one albergue, the crazy Spanish hippie was lifting up my mattress from the bunk below, and another Spaniard was warning me about him and trying to scare me. So I whipped out my big knife with the wooden handle (just like the one Javier has). I started stroking the blade and said, "I'm not afraid." He took his blanket and went and slept somewhere else—thankfully!
