Musings, Thoughts & Commentaries
We departed Bilbao early, quick visit to Algorta, Avenida de Basagoiti, where I once lived then drove south to Burgos, the capital of Castile. We walked along the river down from the main square.
As we arrived at the cathedral, the local bishop was conducting High Mass, red carpet rolled out and a full choir and his followers in elegant attire. We gradually moved along the side to near the front to hear him praying in Latin.
Elaiza purchased a rose-scented rosary and I bought post cards—we have mailed a post card back to ourselves from every stop we made in Spain, signed by all four of us with a comment about the location.
I mailed a postcard of Burgos Cathedral from Burgos to Mrs. Burgos (Both Emily’s and Eliza’s teacher in elementary school back in Huntington Beach) and bought a small replica of the cathedral to give to Mrs. Burgos at Christmas.
