Not much to say today. Walked and walked and walked some more. Much of the terrain was on paths that had rocks of varying sizes so that one had to watch the route continuously, and place the feet carefully.
The result is that I’ve got a touch of shin splints, in case you are interested. The small toe blister does not bother me too much any more but I’m keeping an eye on it.
I entered Burgos in late afternoon. I took the “scenic” river route but found the directions confusing and the route long and tiring. (See my next post for detailed directions on the route.)
Had a cold drink at a cafe in Burgos and greeted 3 acquaintances as they passed. Wandered toward the cathedral and saw some more people from last night, who had so-so comments about the municipal albergue. So I took a hotel at €35, maybe for 2 nights (to be decided tomorrow).
Then who should I encounter but the Canadian Clan! And the blistered English girl! They are finishing their second night here.
