Day – 27 Fromista – October 12th
Meseta is quite a change and is challenging in its own right though much easier walking. You are presented with bleak landscape contributing to some boredom, plus heat, etc.
This section really highlights the remarkable irrigation system of canals and viaducts. I am told that is much more sophisticated than it appears. The Spanish developed irrigation systems before the Romans.
I stopped at the main canal junction to say hi to Marianne the donkey, who is pulling the car/cart, to give her an apple.
I ended up chatting with a couple of very lovely and cheerful Irish girls who said that my hat made me look like a Shaman.
As soon as I checked into the albergue I became stomach sick making for a long rough night. The hosptilera was very kind and provided a blanket.
