Leaving Bilbao we started heading south towards Madrid. We stopped in Burgos to see El Cid's tomb in the cathedral.
Continuing south a slight detour to the west took us to see the impressive Alcazar of Segovia.
Next day we hit Madrid where we would find our quarry-Picasso's 'Guernica'. However the museo Reina Sofia was closed the day we arrived so we had to spend an extra night at Madrid's one & only campsite sweating in our stuffy tents. We passed the evening exploring some of the city's exotic watering holes.
After Madrid we headed west into the vastness of Castille la mancha. We didn't see any Quixote style windmills but we passed literally hundreds of the modern turbine type.
We were heading straight across country to Barcelona but a friend was visiting Zaragoza to the north so we took a sharp left turn & headed up into Aragon to meet him.
