Unusual day. There was a Medieval Festival in Burgos celebrating their hometown hero, El Cid. (A military hero from the 11th century). So, rather than my usual routine of starting to walk early in the morning, I hung out in town until lunch and enjoyed the festivities.
My walk was only 8 miles today. Since I started walking so late, I saw very few pilgrims on the trail. Tomorrow will be back to normal.
The village in which I’m staying tonight is very small. Quite a contrast from Burgos, but a nice change of pace.

I’m enjoying following along, Bill! Did you ever see the 1961 movie about El Cid, with Charlton Heston? I don’t think I ever did, but now I have a reason to check it out!
I will watch it now!
Bill, I’m enjoying following your travels, thank you for sharing. Given the recent strength of the dollar compared the euro, are you noticing an increase in your purchasing power?
Yes, definitely. It’s amazingly cheap here. Dinner with wine snd dessert is under $20. Party pilgrim pricing, partly dollars.
Great videos baby bro! Thanks for letting me live vicariously through your posts. Have a great birthday hike tomorrow!!
Caledonian bagpipe influences are everywhere. Where are the Tapas? Show us the tapas!!
Have a Happy Birthday! Looks like they had a parade to get you ready for your birthday:-)
Happy Birthday Bill!!
