Burgos is a very civilized place. The big tourist attraction is its Cathedral. We were staying beside it so we went in for a gawk early yesterday. It has had a major restoration in the last few years so it presented itself well for our visit. Went for a walk around the old city looking for apple tart and failed so I put the feet up for the afternoon. Had some tapas and a couple of beers to replace my fluids and called it a day. Headed off at 7 am and had our biggest day do far with 31 kilometers. Gaby has a bad blister on her small toe so she tried the boots for the first 12 Kms. She then put on the sandals and took off like a March hare. Made good progress through good countryside and arrived at a tiny village called Hontunas. Did the usual ablutions and laundry and had a lovely meal across the road from the Albergue. No Internet here so I have to switch on the Data Roaming on the iPhone. O Mother of Jesus! The only unusual thin that happened was that some auld fella keeled over trying to get into his car. Three of us ran to help him. Finally got him to his feet; he jumped into his car and drove off. I think he was delighted that 3 pilgrims saw him rather than the locals as he tooted us from his chariot as he sped away. I don't need to mention that there was a whiff of drink off
him I suppose.
