Train crash

I am writting this from memory (no notes) a month after it happened but it needs to be recounted. We were travelling by train from Almeria to Granada to Aljeciras. Between Granada and Aljeciras the train hit a truck which had broken down on a level crossing. The train was derailed and unfortunately the truck driver was killed, luckily nobody else was hurt.

As a result of this all the passengers were transfered to busses. On a bus we met some Kiwis called Jan and Josetta who in a twist of irony have spent the past year living at Highbury Corner just down the road from us. We all stayed in a tiny hotel by the port and had a laugh.

Shame we’ll never see them again – we got the first ferry to Morocco before they got up.
