Blizzard and Hail to Burgos

Camino: Day 9 – Thursday April 16, 2009
San Juan – Ortega to Burgos (Walk – 27km)

Undulating walk in a strong cold headwind and rain which turned to snow and hail.

I gather Spain is going through an unusual cold-snap this spring. Stopped at every village along the way for a cafe con leche and a Magdalena cake.

The coffee and dreaming of staying in a warm hotel room got me through the day. Decided to stay in a nice hotel and maybe for 2 days to boost my spirits and take the chill from my bones. Body is otherwise doing fine, sciatic pain comes and goes and the feet are blessedly blister free.
