Woke up in ages and headed on out stocked with sufficient water. As I walked up hill I reminisced about the Virginia farm lands.
My mother would be proud I took a picture next to a cross. So this one is for you mom!
I separate from Tyler and Rebecca since I have to purchase some Camino necessities from the local store. Walking through Burgos is definitely different than walking through little tiny towns. It has a bigger city feel.
I quickly check into my albergue, shower, change, wash my clothes. My albergue is above a church and is small (only 16 beds), two unisex showers, and a separate bathroom for men and women.
I walk around and meet up with my friends in the center plaza of the city for food, wine, amusement and camaraderie.

Finally, we head back to the albergue for a nap, then a Spanish serenade by the albergue operator and a trip to the main Cathedral for a tour.
I will cover the tour of the Cathedral as a separate post, but will say that is was AMAZING!
After the tour we went to dinner at a restaurant recommended by the albergue operator. We ordered various entrees and ate tapas style. It was delicious and a good break from the common peregrino menu.
Finally for desert we went to a ice cream place next to our albergue called Su Cream to indulge in our sweet tooth. Predictibly, I got the Bomba De Chocolate but the other options look delicious as well.
And then it was bed time.
