Leon on October 1st

Yes, that’s right, we’re still in Leon playing tourist.  Went for caffe con leche before the new pilgrims awoke.  Talked about how far we would walk tomorrow and settled on eight miles.  We will take a bus out of Leon to avoid the industrial outskirts.  It is not like Burgos with its beautiful park that stretched for miles.  We came back to the Hostal and went for breakfast with Linda and Helen at a hotel bar/cafe on the main drag in the old town.  We all toured the gothic cathedral that is magnificent.  1,800 square meters of stained glass.  Took a chu-chu tour of Leon that was fun.  There was a Bach organ recital at the cathedral at 8:30 but restaurants don’t start serving till 8 or 8:30 so that was out.  Had dinner with a sixty-some woman from Canada who was travelling alone.  Packed up and will be ready to start walking again tomorrow.  Another great day on the Camino.
