Ages to Burgos 22 km
Today’s walk was into the big city of Burgos – population 170,000.
Here is a wider angle picture of the same view:the thing to note in this picture is how flat the horizon looks. That’s because it is. The next section is going to be a mental challenge. The city of Burgos is 900m high and it is freezing in the winter and blistering hot in the summer – I’m glad I am here in the autumn.
I had been expecting miles of boring suburbs, but no. The park lead right into the heart of the town.
It’s just that in England you don’t normally get a good glass of red wine with this!
I have been walking for nine days without a stop. So I am having a rest day here in Burgos tomorrow. I feel I need one. My cold is slowly disappearing, my legs are working fine. Lazy days are very good for me and do me a world of good!!
