My Camino Day 13 & 14

My Camino Day 13: Burgos to Hontanas ( 32 km)
My Camino Day 14: Hontanas to Boadilla (27 km)


I left the albergue 6 am, ready to walk again after an one day rest in Burgos. I filled my medicine bag with different kinds of compeed, antibiotic cream, antiseptic ointment, and more band-aids. I also bought a new sunscreen lotion. All for the famous walking in the Meseta region.  The Meseta is the section between Burgos and Astorga (180 km), flat plains on the plateau of central Spain known for heat and heat and heat... Some people skip that part. My friend Noel who walked the Camino last year strongly suggested that I should not skip the Meseta at all and buy enough supplies before leaving Burgos. That's what I did. 

I walked 32 km to Hontanas. The next day from Hontanas to Boailla (27 km). I was lucky to have wind and rain which I prefer to scorching heat. On the day 14 during my walk from Hontanas to Boadilla I experienced the Camino blue. I felt down and lost appetite. They say the Camino blue is a part of the Camino. I had a community dinner with other pilgrims. Although I could not enjoy the meal as I would like to, I thank God for daily food. Buen Camino!
