In Burgos

And feeling terribly smug. In terms of albergues Burgos has always been a bit lacking, the municipal albergue Paral was some huts on the far outskirts of town and most people had to get buses back to get any kind of a look at the Cathedral.

Paral has closed and there´s now a new (as in opened in August) municipal albergue just round the corner from the Cathedral. In terms of albergues it´s positively palacial, clean,shiny,personal lights and plugs on each bunk thick mattresses...lifts!!! This is better than some hotels and it´s only 3€.

This place is so new that it´s not even in the guide books, I only knew to look for it because of the Atapuerca albergue having a notice about Paral closing.

It came as a huge relief because the walk into Burgos is not a lot of fun (every time I think I´m going to catch the bus in and every time I stupidly keep on trudging). There´s really not a lot to say about it other than the 18K felt longer and more wearying than the 25 odd k yesterday.

Anyhow I should get going because the smell of fresh paint is making me a little woozy.
