EL NORTE

March 16 - March 23, 2010

Day 7:  To the north with a stop at Burgos visiting the cathedral which has the tomb of El Cid.  And then a romantic evening at Posada Santa Maria la Real in Aguilar de Campů. 

Day 8:  Back to Burgos to recover the famous Yankees cap that had been left at the church mercado.  After driving around Santander bedded down at Posada Sobosque in a not-on-the map town Mortera just to the east.

Day 9:  Along the coast of Bay of Biscay with a stop at Roman ruins and a secluded beach.  Finally arrive at Bilbao and with the help of  tourist information get lodgings at Gran Hotel just across from the Guggenheim Museum.

Day 10:  The Guggenheim in Bilbao is of highly imaginative design and is the repository of grand and outrageous installation art.  A forty-foot high puppystatue planted with blooming flowers guards the entrance.  Then a ride up the tram and a snack in the "old city".

Day 11:  A drive along the coast with a stop at Ondarroa then south ending at Tarazona and the Hotel de las Brujas (Wiches).

Day 12:  On the way to the airport a quick stop at Guadalajara.
