Today I walked 24.5 k (15.2 miles) from Boadilla Del Camino to Carrión De Los Condes – through the villages of Fromista, Población De Campos, Revenga De Campos and Villarmentero De Campos. It was a long, one foot in front of the other day, like the last few – through sunflower (girasoles) and wheat fields. Again I left by 6:30 a.m., mostly walked by myself – and even though it seemed the day would never end and that my village would never appear, I finished my just under six hour day before noon! Highlights include walking for close to an hour under the light of a full moon, walking a couple of kilometers with Halla from Germany and walking through town to find Albergue Santa María (a part of Inglesia de Santa María la Blanca) with Teddy from Japan. We also found a tienda (little store) all due to MY limited Spanish!!! We were one and two in line when it opened at noon, and quickly joined by three other Japanese as well as a man from Sweden. By the time we got checked in there were 15 more people waiting to get it!
