Camino de Santiago 2018

Day 13 Burgos to Hornillos del Camino

SPAIN | Monday, 11 June 2018 | Views [190]

After a terrific breakfast of literally everything, we roll ourselves out to the Camino trail on a cool morning in Burgos. Our focus still on food, Jeff finds his soulmate below. After posing with Mr. Gelato, he had to pull me away from this window display of today's breads.

We passed the Universidad de Burgos as we walked through town this morning. According to its website it enrolls about 11,000 students in 30+ undergraduate programs, graduate programs and a law school.

 This beautiful driveway fronts an estate just outside Burgos.

We met Peter in the laundromat in Burgos yesterday and again today, with his wife Alison in a cafe in Tardajos. Alison was touring the cathedral in Burgos yesterday while Peter was doing their laundry. She says, "I was taking care of our souls, he was taking care of our undies." They're from Melbourne, Australia and are hiking part way and biking part way.

 We saw lots of stork nests today. They're atop stone arches, church bell towers, etc. Anywhere high enough.

 It's Saturday and this church in Tardajos is being prepared for a wedding. 

 This wall of signs directs us out of Tardajos toward Rabe de Las Calzadas. Jeff was looking for grapes, but it's too early in the season...


This troubled fence outside Rabe de Las Calzadas is made from pallets. Evidently, not the most long-lasting fencing material.


Hornillos de Camino in the distance from the Camino trail. 


We stopped for lunch in Hornillos and found this Welcome to Arizona sign above our table. We are staying at a historic bed and breakfast about 4 miles outside of town tonight so we called our host from the cafe to pick us up. Miguel was a great host and excellent cook! We were the only guests on this Saturday evening.

From our hotel window we see this optimistic senora hanging out her laundry. We can only conclude that she has sophisticated weather radar that is showing her a brief window of clear skies before the next rain storm.
