After taking the ferry from Tangier to Algercias we took the train to Barcelona. It was a beautiful train ride--through mountains and rolling countryside. It was overcast most of the day and we weaved in and out of mist. Coming from wide open skies of Botswana it was a little oppressive to be under clouds and grey.
We rang in the New Year watching fire works from our hotel balcony. Well done Spain! It was a pretty impressive display.
We then took the high speed train from Barcelona to Paris. And have spent the days wandering through the streets of Paris.
