Day 3: BURGOS
El Cid statue
tour of monasterio de las huelgas
huddle for warmth in the bookstore for a solid hour
second visit to our favorite Ali-Babba joint where the owner, McDreamy, treated us to a plate of fries and sauce.
find a lookout over the city
beautiful path through the woods, very Washingtonesque
what’s this? ANOTHER playground??? they never get old.
board the bus
too much laughter makes old men think we are drunk.
watch Sandlot on the busride home
.....you’re killing me smalls.....
El Norte era maravilloso. I loved this trip, and was pleasantly surprised to find that it was not as frigidly cold as I had been told (más o menos...). Between the cathedrals, playgrounds, bonding time with the girls, and dreamy restaurant owners, the North left me quite satisfied. ¡Hasta luego amigos!
