The blisters with the compeed plasters seem to have held their integrity and not increased in numbers – looking forward to the rest day in Burgos
The early morning walks are really beautiful
Along the way to Alta de la Pedraja at a rest stop we met our first South African on the Camino – Annie is also from our part of Cape Town (The Deep South) She recognized our accents ?
The big challenge of the day was the trundle over Alta de la Pedraja
A memorial on top reminds of the tough history and fascist impact on the leadership of Spain in the Spanish civil war 1936 to 1939 –
The monument is dedicated to a group of 300 men from Burgos whose bodies were dumped here after their execution during the Civil War.
It is worth reading up on the Spanish civil war – https://encyclopedia.ushmm.org/content/en/article/spanish-civil-war
On the way down a local artist has set up seats and sells cool drinks snacks coffee etc
