7 April 2016. Belorado to Villa Franca de Monta de Oca
Worst. Sleep. Ever. I was the first one up this morning. Took care of my toe and did some stretching. My back is still hurting. Breakfast was fine - the normal cafe, tostada, yogurt. I really don't like Belorado. We were on the road by 8. We stopped in Espinosa del Camino for a coffee and made it to Villa Franca around 1100. We were trying to figure out what to do next; take the bus the rest of the way to San Juan de Ortega or spend the night in Villa Franca. Cullen went in to the San Anton Abad hotel to get some bus info and liked it so we decided to stay. We are in the albergue but with our own room and bath. Tomorrow we will take the bus to Castanares then walk to Burgos - about 4 miles. We are so fatigued. We had a nice shower, washed our clothes, hung them out to dry, then to the bar for a couple of beers. I suspect my backache is due to some sort of UTI as neither of us has been drinking enough water. The weather has turned cool, our room is not very warm,and we are using the heater in our room to finish drying our clothes. We heard a lot of complaints from the pilgrims while we were in the reception area using wifi.
