There was no rush to start our day as there wasn't anything left in Jerez that we wanted to see and we didn't have much planned for Cadiz. We woke up slowly, repacked, gathered our belongings and slushed it over to the bus station. Sunday doesn't have the best time schedules and the 11:45 bus we thought we were getting was not leaving till 13:00. OK. Even though when we arrived to Jerez, we checked in with the train station and translated that no train was leaving for Cadiz on Sunday, the station was next door so we thought we'd just make sure. Ha! Train was leaving in 10 mins!!
We had a bit of panic when we arrived
The rain had not let up. We could see the bus station across the way and needed to ask about our next trip so we dashed over. Once we were in the bus station, we did not leave for nearly an hour. It was raining so hard that all the people coming in were drenched even with umbrellas. The wind was kicking up and there was no way to avoid the storm.
We rolled up our pants, Steve threw a trash bag over his rolling backpack, rain covers over the others, and I switched to my Crocs (a brand that I swore I would not buy into but having found a pair which were slings, could be worn outside and in the shower, I couldn't be happier with having bought them for like $10 at Ross's). Usually we grab maps from an information stand or car hire but there were none that had maps (that they wanted to give us, at least). With only the maps we printed out from Google, when we made the reservations, and directions from the hostel we set out. We were drenched within minutes and lost. What can you do but laugh it off?!
Once we found our place, we left things out to dry and headed back out
So that gets me to where we are at now. All caught up with our blog (woo hoo), about to make some dinner, get rested up and start our journey to Gibraltar tomorrow. Praying that the rain stops following us...the sun is still out now so that's a good sign, right?!
