The target was acquired about 2 weeks ago and now has been reached! Cadiz is not considered the Mediterranean, but the coast of Spain is pretty much in the Mediterranean.
Today was fairly eventful. For a start Alex left today. He left around 11 a.m. to catch a taxi to catch a train to catch a plane to catch a connector flight to go to Frankfurt.
Secondly today is our first day in port for 8 days. It was exciting bring close to land again. I've never experienced the feeling of the land tipping after being at sea for awhile.
The third, but most exciting was our experience with groceries and public transit. It goes as follows:
We took the bus to near the Post Office/Bank. From there we went to a super market. We picked up 8 bags of food there for, guess what...85 Euros (that's cheap)!!!! Check out the exchange rate! Anyhow, 8 bags of food is really heavy (as we soon found out). We moved the groceries to the bus stop and proceeded to cross the street 4 times trying to find the right bus stop (luckily the bus stops we close together)!!! We found the right bus and the bus driver said it was a kilometer to Puerto Sherry. We took his bus. We got off the bus nowhere near the water and started to carry the groceries down the road. We were like, "Boy, I don't think we can do this!" We came to a man who was starting to load up his car and we were so desperate that my Dad asked him for a ride! The man (his name is Rafael) gave us one (God bless him). Rafael took us directly to our dock. "Muchas Gracias!!!"
Anyhow, that is a recount of our adventures so far on land (and a little bit of on-the-water stuff thrown in there).
