A good start and a somewhat disappointing (read awful) walk into Burgos...more later.
Yesterday's supper was a fun international affair as 18 of us sat at two tables for supper...everyone received a Canadian lapel pin...turns out two pilgrims were there from Quebec Canada.
|Paella with carne (meat)|
|Mervin with Tyvek rain skirt|
|After supper we walked around for a short while|
|Me with Albergue owner...he was a funny guy|
|Famous archeological site with 1,000,000 year old human remains which apparently prove that our ancestors were cannibals|
|Famous Brazilian lawyer on a tough section|
|Very interesting rock circles|
And now for the STUPIDEST PICTURE EVER...I put sunblock on this morning in the dark. After walking for a while and sweating my eyes started to burn like crazy as the sunblock ran into them. I have used some Visine and things are a little better...however look AT WHAT I LOOKED LIKE!!!
|I actually have a University Degree and was a Manager in a large company...some people even think I am a little bit smart...hah proven you wrong! Paulo and Marc how could you let this happen!|
After a short late morning break we wanted to take an option to Burgos which followed the river...this had been highly recommended in the Camino Forum. The other options were through the Industrial area or following the highway. We followed the highway...beautiful!
|Oh this was a mistake!|
We are resting before exploring Burgos...for tomorrow's blog. We are a happy but somewhat sorry lot. Marc is simply walking through pain, Paulo's feet are a mess with multiple blisters...I am in pretty good shape except for the sunscreen in my eyes which causes tears of joy!
Nothing that a cerveza and beer won't make better. We now have to strategize the next few days where we go through the Meseta...we are all thinking about the treat in Leon...keeping us motivated.
