On the European Continent
We just received a message from Kempie: the group successfully departed from Africa, navigated the Strait of Gibraltar, and has arrived well in the Spanish port of Algeciras. Alas, Morocco couldn't bear the upcoming separation and stalled the ferry--just enough so the group missed their connecting train to Cordoba. And for good measure, they will overnight not in a Spanish hacienda but in the Hotel Marrakesh run by a Tangeri. New friendships are hard to shake.
