    Población de Campos

    July 7 in Spain

    July 7th

    We were going to stop in Fromista today, but decided to walk on to Población de Campos. We are really glad we pushed on because our albergue has an amazing bar with awesome food - I had some Croquetas caseras that were so yummy, and Alan is oohing and awing over his bacon and cheese bocadillo as I write this.🙂😋

    Another plus at this albergue is that each of our beds are in their own little cubicle mini much better than regular bunk beds. I have added a picture so you can see. Even the beds on top have little mini rooms and stairs that go up to them. It costs 10 euros a piece to stay here, and all of the pilgrims were very excited to see that the washing machine was hand washing today 🙂

    We walked 18 miles today, and for much of the walk (except the last 4 miles) I did not feel well. I told Alan I was not going to eat as much tonight as I did last night. Even though last night’s dinner was amazing, I think it was too much for my system and too late in the evening. We only have around 10/11 miles tomorrow, so I have eaten earlier and way less tonight. We will see how tomorrow goes.

    Because I was battling heartburn and my stomach, I didn’t take many pictures/video today. I took a couple after our big climb up from the valley (we had a great view from the top) and I took some of a few sunflowers 🌻. We have been going by fields of them, but they have not bloomed yet (except for the rogue ones we saw today). I would love to come across a whole field of open sunflowers!

  • Day24

    After battling a queasy stomach during the 10 mile walk from Poblacion de Campos to Carrion de los Condes, I decided to hunker down in a real hotel room for a couple of days. The Hotel la Corte is a one-star hotel in a one horse town, but it feels great to have a private bath - with fluffy bleached towels and crisp sheets.

    I took a quick tour around town and visited one convent and three huge churches. The hotel is right across the street from one of those ancient churches.

    Today was market day in town. It looked like most people in town would buy their clothing from the weekly market vendors. There were underwear tables, sock tables, shirt and pant tables. Only a few fruit and vegetable vendors were in the mix. This was a very functional market, nothing like Bozemam’s farmers market or Seattle’s Pike Place Market. At 2:00, following lunch, the vendors had packed their wares and were moving down the road. I noticed that the market days at towns along the Camino seemed to follow one after another. The vendors just move from small town to small town on a regular cycle. The towns don’t seem large enough to support many stores.

    In this town I searched out a grocery store, pharmacy, and bakery. Most little stores carry only food items, pharmacies carry toiletries in addition to pharmaceuticals. It’s different to see cosmetics sold from behind the counter at the farmacia here in Spain.
