April 20, 2013, Day 21, Boadilla del Camino to Carrion de los Condes (29 km)
A stunning walk out of Boadilla along the Canal Castilla. The morning was crisp and cold but it felt good and refreshing. The colors of the landscape were spectacular. I stopped in the Templar town called Fromista for ham, eggs and consume.
And then WAMMM! I hit a wall coming out of Fromista. For the next 15 km I didn’t feel at all well. I did’t want to walk and I didn’t want to talk. The thought of a cafe con leche 5 km down the road kept me going. Edgar and I decided to get off the main road and follow the river which went along side The Camino. It was a good idea but I still felt horrible.
We stopped by this trippy retro bar/alburgue that had tipis. They played great 60’s music and the guys working there were totally stoned…it was pretty funny. I tried to trade my 5 toed shoes for a burro but failed.
We ended up having an early supper at Meson Templario in Villalcazar…steak, fries, white asapragus, wine and ice-cream cake. I was slightly tipsy the last 6 km and somehow survived the day.
