El Camino: Burgos Zero

Burgos. Zero day.

We spent the day in Burgos getting chores done and exploring. The people here are so nice and have a great sense of humor.

We started at the bank getting change for laundry. I was kicked out at the metal detector for my camera. I tossed it into a locker and headed to the line.

We found a laundry mat and discovered there was a change machine there we could have used but it all worked out.

A quick walk to the post office and we mailed non essentials ahead to Santiago. Bye bye boots. My bed is now made and I’ll be walking in sandals the rest of the way.

After a loooong and leisurely lunch we toured the Catedral de Burgos; a world heritage site.

I think we spent at least 3 maybe four hours in there. The building within 20+ chapels and museum is actually awe inspiring and a little overwhelming. We listened to prerecorded tour guides and made our way throughout.

We wandered home and climbed into beds. Tomorrow will be here soon.

About Caro

I am a social worker by training and a peace officer by profession having worked with California’s delinquent youth and young adults for 28 years. I firmly believe that our development as humans depends on our environment and that sometimes we get stuck. As such, I write about those things we sometimes ignore or fail to see until we are forced to pay attention.
