I don't know when exactly I will have wifi again, so I am marking this post for Sunday, August 18.
Today we did a lot. We left Río Duratón and headed for Burgos.
It was only about an hour or so away. It is famous for its Cathedral. We planned to visit that, but before we visited a monastery. It was beautiful, both were. And I have pictures to prove it.
You couldn't take pictures in the monastery, but we could take pictures of the outside.
Here are those pictures:
The cathedral was massive. And before it, you hit the door to the city:
You walk through the tunnel, and BAM. A huge Gothic Cathedral.
We walked through the doors, and my host father asked me if I wanted the tour in English. I nodded happily! We have gone on the other tours and I only got a fifth or so of what they were saying, so that was wonderful. They gave all of us a telephone thing, and mine had English all over it. It was nice. You just pushed the button for the room you were in, and it told you all about it.
There were 29 or more rooms. All beautiful. Here are some pictures:
And speaking of tombs, they were literally everywhere. In every room. Either in the ground with something above it like so:
Or they were in boxes of cement or marble or ivory (those who were most noble). They were my favorite, as you will be able to tell with my many pictures:
We were done with the tour and began to walk out. Before the hall ended, a huge courtyard appeared.
It was such a beautiful place. No way could you see something like that in the US. Some of the sculptures and paintings were done with Leonard DaVinci and Michael Angelo. It was amazing to say the least.
After we went into a gift shop, and I love to shop. So I bought earrings that were pieces of the Crystal of Marano, which is a very famous church known for the crystal inside of it.
Then, we went for ice cream, but I miss Lemonade so much that I got this:
After that, we headed to where I am now, I beautiful house in the north. I will find out the name of the city tonight. But we went through mountains, around mountains. It was beautiful.
We finally got to "La Casa Rural", and it is so beautiful.
It is really amazing. I will keep writing and post all of them once I get wifi if I have many!
