Here I am, somehow successfully arrived in Gran Canaria, despite Iberia's best efforts. My first plane was delayed not quite long enough to give me hope that I'd catch my connection, but just too long for me to do so comfortably. Thankfully, the second plane was also delayed, so my running down the entire length of Madrid's Terminal 4 was somewhat unnecessary.
How am I here? I'm only here because of the nice people at the GNOME Foundation, who decided to sponsor me. Thank you, nice people!
