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.

Nice work. I don't remember the hut's being that bad. Other than the lack of kitchens after we'd just purchased many kg's of food after getting carried away at the large scale supermarket.

But then we showed up at the right time to get a small room with just the 5 of us...

Good luck with the Meseta!

I admit I never actually stayed there but the thought of trying to engineer a trip back into town after having walked all of the way out of it was not at all appealing.
