Another easy walk - at El Burgo RaneroSeptember 24 in Spain
We are spoilt with these flat walks...still on the Maseta but this will end soon after León I think. We left leisurely at 8.10, and the searing heat of yesterday afternoon had transformed to delicious cool, and we walked out of Sahagún almost liking the city! It is not beautiful, but we do cross a lovely Roman bridge as we leave. This is an intensely agricultural area....in the distance the silo is taller than any of the church towers!! But today didn’t feel quite as far away from civilisation....there were main roads and trucks on the horizon, but we walked along a little path next to a very minor road, hardly any cars, and with a shade-providing line of trees, and we didn’t even work up a sweat. Extremely comfortable and still interesting.
So here we are, before 1 pm, in a tiny place, washed and refreshed. Our washing is hanging out on our balcony (hope no one looks up from the bar and sees it!)...and tomorrow is another fairly easy, flat walk of about 20 kms I think, and then we walk into León on Wednesday and stay for 2 nights!Read more
