These boots are made for walking

Spain loves American music, everywhere you go, it’s American music playing. So this morning I’m doing my ritual , I wrap my feet with cast gauze, then surgical tape. Rub the toes generously with Vaseline , 2 pairs of socks, then the boots. Pack the pack with good balance, make sure I have either the rain gear or sun gear readily available. Guide book, lip balm and cash handy . Check the weather if you have wifi, grab a conleche in a local bar, sometimes a bocadillo. And you go. Everyday, same thing, no matter where.
Castile ye Leon, richest province in Spain .Very large city. Beautiful, rich in history, I didn’t tour the cathedral , but have several photos of the exterior . My favorite was San Marco and the Panthene, extraordinary. I hope my photos do it justice. It was in the movie” where , Martin Sheen tells his friends they can get rooms on him” .
I also got to experience a farmers market. Couldn’t resist so I bought in very small amounts of cheese, salami, dried fruit, nuts. For me it was very difficult, I wanted everything. I took photos of the meat market. We will never see these in the USA . Hooves, ears, tails, tongues . Quite a spectacle .
I lost my friends in Carrion, so Leon was hard for me. I was anxious to get moving, semi healed blisters and all. And off I went.
