Because this was a zero day I decided to sleep in a little late this morning, get up at 7 a.m., and enjoy a full day of sightseeing. I went down to the restaurant and had coffee and starting practicing my Spanish with the friendly waitress that was there the night before. After breakfast I walked back toward the Cathedral to go into the small shops. I did that until around noon and then toured the Cathedral until about 1:30 p.m. when I met up with Hawk and Christine for lunch. Leon is a nice town and has a lot to do as well as a lot of places to eat. It is a large city but not one where you always feel like you getting lost.

After lunch it was time to work on my Spanish. I went conversation hunting and it wasn't long before I had one. I've been explaining to people that I am trying to learn Spanish and in no time they are helping me with words and phrases that I don't understand. One of the most enjoyable things about this trip is working on learning the language.

Several museums in the area also offer tours but I just didn't have enough time to visit everything. To do everything you'd need to stay about two days and tomorrow is another hiking day so tonight it will be early to bed on the trail by sunrise... Buen Camino!
