Day 4 of the tour and it will be another long day on the bus as we head to Gilbraltar to cross over into Mococco.
Today I befriended 80 year old Thomas, a widower from Chicago. He travels as much as he can and was excited to be on our tour. I was inspired by his stamina and cheerful spirit.
Also spent some time with a lady of about 70, also a widower. I think she misses her husband a lot, because she talks about him as if he had not passed away more than 8 years ago.
Funny how a few people can change an attitude - I don't want to tarnish anyone's experience by finding fault with the tour and have resolved to enjoy everything as much as possible. The tour director is knowledgeable and competent --- it is nice not to have to think about anything except getting to the bus on time.
There are 48 people on the tour, I wonder what the next 44 have to say?
