Raindrops keep falling

We left Ages early Saturday morning with Burgos as our destination. It rained on and off all morning. There was a rather steep, rocky ascent which was very slippery due to the rain. One crazy guy was running full tilt on the downhill side yelling at the top of his lungs. I was having enough of a challenge keeping my feet under me going slowly. There were three options for entering Burgos, and we chose the middle path. We were a little on edge coming into such a big city, through some rather sketchy neighborhoods, and seeing few other pilgrims. We walked for a while with a young man from Sydney. Burgos was buzzing as it was a national holiday weekend. The partying went on into the wee hours of the morning. We had rain again today with a stiff, cold wind blowing. We were grateful for finding a good stopping place for the night (in a brand new albergue in Hornillos del Camino called Meeting Point).

Yes, there are rocky parts of the Camino.
The Burgos Cathedral is not to be missed.
Colors of the Camino.
Sad sunflowers.
Today me live in the moment. Unless it is unpleasant.
In which case, me eat cookie.  Cookie Monster.
