Hello once again, dear readers. Hannah is back in the ol' US of A by now, but I am continuing my journey. I'm writing currently from Madrid, Spain. I woke up at 3:30 this morning in Istanbul to catch a shuttle to the airport, even though my flight wasn't until 6:55. Needless to say, I've been drifting in and out of sleep all day, but I did manage to do some walkaround sightseeing here in Madrid. Of note were the Palacio Real, the Catedral de la Almudena, and the spectacular Basilica de San Francisco el Grande (sorry, no great sites for that one). There is also an abundance of parks full of trendy couples and an interesting array of street performers in every plaza. Tomorrow I sleep in Casablanca, so wish me luck! Hopefully one of these places will have WiFi so I can post some pictures.

Hey Matt,

Thanks for the word from Spain! I wasn't sure exactly when you would be in Spain, and then Morocco. Please let us know when you make it to Morocco safely! Glad to hear you got to see some interesting stuff in Madrid!

I want to go to Spain! (Whine, whine!) You are seeing the most amazing things!

How are you, Hannah? Home and sleeping I imagine.
