Sleeping at the park wasn't too bad, apart from about 2AM onwards as a group of Spanish youth came to enjoy themselves there, in the typically noisy Hispanic manner.
I had BTW mspath taken note last time I was in Zaragoza of that general location near the station as a potential sleeping out place, which I always keep an eye open for, but your post was most welcome anyway in a confirmatory manner -- so thanks !!
Sunday timetables this morning though, so that both bus and train out are towards 11AM, and so I'll get a train to Burgos and then stay at the Albergue. Moratinos tomorrow.
The knees are surprisingly pain-free, regardless that I've done virtually no walking so far. And I'm already getting used to the pack weight again. Possibly I suddenly need less cerveza for pain relief than I did ? That would be weird, but good if true !! But the cerveza is still a useful helpmeet in this business of waiting for trains ...
By now you are on your way. Maybe even in Burgos. Wishing you a good indoor rest tonight and a good journey tomorrow. And pain-free knees without needing cerveza!Sunday timetables this morning though, so that both bus and train out are towards 11AM, and so I'll get a train to Burgos and then stay at the Albergue
Marie-Noëlle was great in 2005, but perfectly awful to me in 2014. Never again, and as things stand now, of the three most important Albergues here, it's the big one I like best.Seems Albergue Emaus is open. A nice alternative for Casa del Cubo.

Heh they even gave me the exact same bed as last time !!
Buen camino!Day 141 - - Sahagún
I am in Leon - - Hooray!!
I am on the Frances - - Hooray !!
I am on the Madrid Way - - Hooray !!
Today has been as the whole of the Camino Frances condensed into a single day.
Strange thing is, Day 140 feels like yesterday.
I'm as slow as I was, and I need the same cervezas to get by as I have previously.
Paddy made me eggs, I drank beers on the Way, the Albergue is an old-fashioned 6€.
Many people offered me drinks. I had a menu del peregrino down priced to menu del dia level, i.e. 1€ less. It was well enough, though the tinto was rather ghastly.
I've talked with many pilgrims of this and that with various alarms and excursions.
It has been a fantastic day !!
Nowhere even close to where I'm going.
All of today was overcast and cool, with some occasional sunny spells, and it rained a bit over the final couple of Ks into the pueblo.How is the weather now?
The Alcalde will arrange a place for me.JabbaPapa,
Any spot near the Plaza Mayor? What about food and beer? Hope you find a friendly local.
JP,Blimming heck - - the locals have provided not just the place to sleep in, but also the lunch, the cervezas, and some extra tinto.
This is the Camino providing big time ...
I even have a shaded porch to sit out in, by the church. Which by itself would have been a decent enough place to sleep.
