Camino update

By on September 14, 2013

Well the days are running into each other so i am going to give updates on the highlights. on day 11 we stayed in a town called Atapuerca where apparently the oldest human remains were found. We stayed in a great municiple hostal that had sorta private rooms, it was great. After that we walked to Burgos which pretty much killed me, i limped in to the city. the camino goes through a very ugly part of the city, very industrial and a long walk to get through to the albergue, lucky for us we were looking for a hotel. because my foot hurt so bad we found a very nice hotel for 75 euros and checked in for a good rest, but jeff had other plans to see the city.  I am glad we went out we went for a tour of the Catherdral and it was amazing they give you a headset to listen in your language to the history of the cathedral but it was a lot of information to take in and eventually i gave up and just lookec around and took lots of pictures. from Burgoswe took a bus to Fromista and i know some people may think that was cheating but at leats i kept moving forward and didn’t quit. my foot needed the rest. once we got to fromista we checked into an albergue which we thought would be cool, a converted railway station, it was not! this was the most rustic we have spent a night, i can’t even describe how bad the bathroom shower was. We left Fromista as soon as we could in the morning about 7 am we were gone and walked 20.5 km to Carrion de le condes.

more to come later but it is dinner time.

      Hey Lisa thought of you the other day we werein a town with a ton of wild cats, they seem to be everywhere now andthey all looked starved. I am doing good we have some cool weather here too heading into Galacia will be colder wehad to buy a sweater. So my blistered feet have healed but then i got bit by a spider and have been to the hospital twice had to have a shot and got two prescriptions. My hand was so swollen and red i couldn’t move my fingers. It is getting better now but i was worried for a bit. As soon as i can i will post pictures. Buen camino.
