Raiding Algeciras

The city of Algeciras have sometimes been mentioned as the most ugly town of entire Spain. Even though the harbor is a disaster due to the refinery, I can think of far worse places.

And from another angle, the northmen of tv-series Vikings raided the city in season 4. This was a callback to the raiding of 859 AD, where the real Björn Ironside supposedly besieged the city.

And the cranes are lovely. With open eyes, it’s possible to find beauty and adventure everywhere.
