San Juan de Ortega to Burgos

All I can say right now is we are all very hungry and none of the places are open. The hotel restaurant won’t open until 8:30. The plaza is deserted and the only place is this lousy bar. We are getting killed by the Spanish siesta and dinner hours. We are hangry birds! Other than that we are doing great.

Ok, back to the mystic you are used to. Since we missed the sunrise we were treated to a wonderful sunset.

After our dinner meal I went to the church and enjoyed a quite meditation as beautiful music played in the background.

We had 26 km to walk to Burgos, so we started early again. We were out before 6:30.

It was another overcast morning and no sun to speak of. We made it to the first town before light. We made it to Atapurca, our second town, early before 8, only to hear loud sounds. We were excited at the aspect of an early breakfast. It turns out that the disco from last night was just ending, and the young men were coming out a little drunk after their late night party.

We decided to continue on to our next town which was over a rugged stony hill.

After over 12 + km we were happy to see the first open place for eating breakfast.

We had covered 13 km by then and enjoyed a hearty breakfast. Sakkar at that point decided to take a cab to the hotel in Burgos while the 4 of us continued our walk. We met a retired man from Switzerland who walked with us all the way into Burgos.

After 2 weeks we are once again in a nice hotel ready to enjoy a rest day tomorrow. The sight seeing will have to wait till tomorrow and so will these
pastries. Here is a little teaser from Burgos.

Signing off from Burgos as the town is about to come alive and we are ready to crash after a 26 km walk (our longest distance so far).
