June 30, 2019 Burgos 

Ciao Salamanca! A few hours of fields and trees on the orange bus – Ciao Burgos! After siesta, we had a lovely guided visit of the Cathedral, built between the 13th and the 18th Century, as well as of the city, following Pound’s route. We marveled at the river, the bridge, and the stones young Pound used to see. Later we were blessed by a sudden downpour.
