Had a rest day in Burgos today. It was much needed after nine days of walking. It was Mother’s day in Burgos, and it was really amazing how many families were out and about in their Sunday best. Everybody was very impressed with the central city area where we stayed. It was very clean, pretty and friendly.
The highlight of the day was the visit to Burgos cathedral and then attendance at the Pilgrims Mass that evening. Two of our pilgrims were struggling a bit – Cindy with an ankle injury and Mark with blisters. Geoff managed a visit to the Museum of Human Evolution whilst the rest of us visited the laundromat. Both left us in a spin.
We stayed at the Hotel Férnan Gonzaléz, 40 % of pilgrims liked the hotel and 60% of pilgrims didn’t like it, naming it the Adams Family Hotel.
