Hui Chin and I travelled to Madrid, Spain from Lisbon, Portugal, by the famous Talgo express with our Eurail Pass.

Spending a couple days exploring Madrid, by every possible means, by conducted bus, on foot, by bus and Metro, we booked on a Couchette to Algeciras, to head over to Tangier.

I wanted to go to Tangier, because while I visited Ceuta in 1978, I've never been to Tangier.

Unfortunately Hui Chin travel on a Singapore passport and must have a visa to Tangier, which she didn't have, so we went to Ceuta.

Ceuta have changed beyond recognition in the 25 years, since I visited there the last time.

Thank you very much mate, if you ever happen to read this.
