At Last

Mr. AwesomeCool is finally here!! He got here yesterday after missing a flight, a bus and sleep for 35 hours straight. We woke up late this morning and walked around town for a little while. There really isn't much to see here. I took him to see the really old church, the bazaar and the rich neighborhood. The church being the most impressive because it looks at least 500 years old.
Tomorrow we start our vacation. On the itinerary: Barcelona, Toulouse, Rome, Athens, Paris. That is a lot of ground to cover in a few short weeks. We're all packed and ready to go, except the train network is as exasperating and confounding as every other thing in this backward country so I can't figure out how to get from Campillos to Barcelona. Actually I can. We have to get from here to Antequera Santa Ana High Speed Train station. The problem is, that NOWHERE can I find out exactly where this train station is. You would think it would be in the city near here called Antequera, wouldn't you?? Because that would make sense, wouldn't it?? But what have we learned, little children, about Spain and making sense?? That NOTHING makes ANY sense whatsoever, which is why on Google Maps, the station appears to be about 15 minutes away from Antequera, in the middle of nowhere, near a town called Bobadilla. Now, why would they put a new, high speed train station in the middle of nowhere and call it Antequera Station even though it's near Bobadilla?? I have no fucking idea. Actually I do. Because they're the fucking Spanish and they do crazy shit like that just to annoy me, that's why.
