Where is it dry? 1st stop Burgos

Where is it warm and dry? Barcelona! Let’s go Dan! Pretty Please!

Never mind the fact that it is on the OTHER side of Spain from where we are now. Spain isn’t that wide across! So to escape from that nasty rain, we headed east again, crossing back on a more inland route. But not to be rushed (even though you could probably cross Spain in about 10 hours), we spent 3 days enjoying the local countryside and smaller cities. We discovered very interesting things each time we stopped.

The first town we stopped in is called Burgos. We expected to just overnight there but we wound up spending a day exploring their modern museum of human evolution. What could be more interesting than the evolution of our own species? Yet this is one of the the only museums on the planet devoted to this topic. Human remains dating back 1.2 million years were discovered recently near Burgos. We saw a jawbone going back 850,000 years ago.
