Day 19 – Itero de la Vega to Frómista

10 mile or so walk. Could have gone a little further but not sure of the next few places. We started after breakfast and walked to Boadilla, where we had an early lunch (hamburguesa) and then continued to walk through the Alta Meseta, a very level place. Here is a stork on top of the church at Boadilla.

20130424-160624.jpgOnce in Frómista we ran into a young lady, Katie, from Ohio and CA with whom we had had dinner the previous evening. 31 years old and finishing up a Masters degree. We also ran into the Swedish couple whom we had seen in Los Arcos and Logroño. We toured to San Martín church. It is a Romanesque church built in 1066 and restored around 1900. The intricate figures on the outside are amazing.
