Birgit was suffering with her back and I didn’t want to walk all the way back into town for dinner last night, so we had a picnic in our room, which was great fun. Leone came to visit before her dinner, and may stay another day and leave with us on Saturday.
I had the best night’s sleep in a long time and we were up and out for breakfast by 8, soon joined by Richard and Jean. Richard, Birgit and I took a taxi to Decathlon and then to the hospital for Birgit’s back. We then split up to sightsee and visit yet more shoe/boot shops and, of course, the farmacia. I was unsuccessful in my search for suitable footwear so will continue on with my sandals until I can maybe find some in Leon. Birgit will be on the bus for the next two days as she has a pinched nerve in her back. What a load of old crocks we are.
Burgos is a beautiful city and we saw it in all its glory today, with sunny skies and 25C. The cathedral takes your breath away and each street has a wonderful mixture of old and new.
We have treated ourselves to another night of starched white sheets and duvets, wifi in bed and a bathroom all to ourselves (pilgrim luxury). Tonight we will have dinner together and then off walking again tomorrow. My feet have calmed down today and I hope for a better day’s walking tomorrow. Fingers and toes crossed.
