Leaving tomorrow. Destination: Ceuta

Listening to Depeche Mode

overcast 16 °C

I went to a rent-a-car place before, with Inge, to pick up the car we need to go to Ceuta in. It's a Seat Altea. Cool driving, but strange feeling, compared to the car I'm used to drive in Iceland(Can you believe it?: an old 1986 Mitshubishi Lancer!).
The plan is as follows: we'll try to leave Vitoria at around 6am, and then we'll drive in turns of 250kms approximately. The distance between Vitoria and Algeciras is about 1050kms, and it takes about eleven hours to get there. Once there, we'll return the rented car and try to catch the ferry to Ceuta as soon as possible. The Strait of Gibraltar will be the next stage of the trip, but the ferry only takes about 45-50 minutes to cover the distance between Europe and Africa. By then we will have crossed the whole Iberian Peninsula and will have jumped from Europe to Africa.
La chica de la biblioteca has just dissapeared, and I miss her a lot, but that I cannot say because we're both supposed to be tough people. But I'm worried about her, and anxious because I haven't had any news from her for quite a long time. I really hope she didn't get angry at me because of what I wrote about her some days ago, when I first mentioned her in this blog (I wrote it in Spanish, after having gone out with a friend to visit some pubs, so it was a bit confusing).
Manuel wrote me a short message today, from Selfoss, telling me he had seen her at the library, just looking as pretty as usual. Lucky guy!: at least he can see her every day if he wants to!
See you in Africa. Gotta finish packing up.
