Greetings from Burgos, a lovely city on the meseta, Spain’s high northern plain.
Our adventures began before we even left home. By ‘we’ I mean me and Janice, my old college roommate who agreed to join me for the first two weeks of this trip to Spain. We had wanted to start our walk in Logrono, but found that it was completo, totally full. So we have a Burgos rest day even before we begin, then take the local bus back to Logrono, where we did find a room for tonight.
Speaking of buses, we had an adventure there, too. We had bought our tickets ahead of time, with plenty of time allowed to get through customs and pick up our bags. However, we didn’t allow enough time for Jan’s plane’s 2-hour flight delay. The bus company clerk sent us to Madrid main bus terminal, where we got new tickets with credit given for our old ones. Plus we met another pilgrim who had been on that plane and was also going to Burgos. The small world of pereginos. 😀
Now we’re off for some cafe con leche. Hasta pronto!
