Ola. We are waiting in Logrona for our bus to Burgos. Sitting at an outdoor cafe with a drink, tea for some, lemonade or coke for others and waiting. We all left our packs at the apartment we stayed in last night so that we could have an easier day and the packs will be delivered to us later here at the bus station. So an easy 9 km walk as a group into town, lunch at the laughing duck or something similar and then a taxi ride to the fortress at Clavijo. What a sight! Walls 1.5 m thick and built on a huge monolithic rock that afforded those in the castle 360 degrees view over the surrounding country side. My book tells me that according to legend St James appeared here on a white horse as Santiago Matamoros helping the christians defeat the moors at the battle of Clavijo in 844. History lesson over. We have a no walking day tomorrow to as we need to get to Leon and we then get back on the road on Tuesday. This post all jumbled ... Supper last night care of Kim from Turkey and Sally who made the bestest lentil soup and we ate that with fresh bread and polished off a few bottles of red wine. A good evening had by all with jokes a plenty from Roy and Charles. All well. Kathy
