Flag of Spain  , Andalusia,
Thursday, September 9, 2010

In the morning we had to move one of the cars cause the neighbours were complaining. We set off from Arganda del Rey at about 1pm after some lush chicken in wine sauce and chorizo leftovers.

We organised everything and got on the road for a very long drive.. straight roads and barren countryside, mostly dryier the further south we got. Drove through the next province, Andalucia-Jaen through a nice mountainous path that was like a natural border. There was a great scenic stop and we took some photos.

It was getting noticeably hotter, some 34 degrees now. Quite a change. We arrived at where we thought our first breakers yard was just before closing time only to realise we were at the wrong place! we phoned up and we had to cross the other side of the town, Sevilla! it was pretty much rush hour and we got kind of lost through the town centre, what a nightmare in the heat with right-hand drive cars! We then phoned up for directions only to find that they said it was the wrong car for parts they had and it was too late to make it, they were closed in 5 mins...

We head of into sevilla town centre in search for internet through all the dense traffic. We find a McDonalds in a big commercial center. We have to pay to park. We finish and the sun is going down. Frustrated we searched through the night for a place to stay and ended up driving endlessly for hours, first place we spotted from the motorway was next to the airport and was really crap, expensive and no wifi. We drove through lots of dirt tracks in the dark to get there and continued searching. Fuel was very low and finally found something next to the motorway just before sevilla. What a trek, it was expensive aswell and they had no wifi. The room was ok and we just took it. That was 11pm. Bad night sleep as there was lots of noise.
