Earlier at the airport, I had tried to move my flight to Barcelona up
a few days because I didn't really fancy spending five days in
Casablanca, urban metropolis that it was. Unfortunately, there turned
out to be only one flight a week from Casa to Barcelona and I was
already on it. Not so easily discouraged, I decided to eschew air
travel in favor of a train ride to Tangier. From there I could ferry
across the Straight of Gibraltar and take the train to Madrid, then on
to Barcelona. Much more adventurous anyway.
So I stayed one night more in Casa and hopped the train to
Tangier the next morning.
