We had a wonderful time in Ages. Lunch with Rosa and Elodia. Then I happened to run into Juan Carlos, Clemente’s friend who had lunch with us yesterday, and he showed me the wood museum where a man showed us all of the miniature carvings he had done. They depict life in Ages. Here is just one of the examples.
Several houses in Ages seem to be falling apart.
I ran into Deborah again, but we didn’t have time to talk because I went to dinner was with Xaui, Carmen, Thurland, and Lorraine. After dinner, Rosa, Elodia, and I went out to see the full moon and saw another sunset first.
In the morning we were very relaxed because Clemente was not picking us up until 10:30. We had breakfast and in walked Ruth who I hadn’t seen in a couple of days.
What a treat to be driven to Burgos by Clemente. He took us out for some local tapas before he went back to his house.
Then Francisco and his son, Angel, (my Servas hosts) picked me up and took me to their apartment for lunch. They taught me how to go back to the center of Burgos via bus.
rosa, Elodia and I took a tour bus around Burgos and then say down to have ice cream and relax. What a surprise to run into to Anna again – Just more Camino magic.
Xaui and Carmen also came into the square and we talked for a while.
I will have to explain the following pictures when I get home. It is too hard for me to write about this in my blog.
We went on a fabulous walking tour of the center of Burgos with a group of pilgrims. The tour guide was so animated and Rosa translated everything for me. My photo of the Cathedral hardly do justice to the beauty of it.
I was so sad to say goodbye to Xaui and Carmen because they are going home from Burgos tomorrow. Letting go of the wonderful connections I am making is one of the difficult parts of the Camino.
before Francisco and Angel picked me up to go back to the apartment where Angel and I had a great conversation over a snack before I retired to write my blog and sleep in a comfortable bed with no snoring,
