Journal Entry:
Caught a train, a ferry, and a bus. Got to Sevilla just before ten o'clock. Spent a little over an hour wandering around trying to find a pension with room (the town is amazingly booked). Joined forces with Nadia, and Australian living in England (seems like they all are). Finally found something near the Cathedral (it's huge - the cathedral, not the room). Had pizza, and cracked open the bottle of port I bought in Lisbon - it's excellent, especially considering it was the cheapest I could find (less than US$4).
