My flight was scheduled to leave at 18:35 UTC-5 from Mexico. It left around 20:30. I took my friend Toño Malpica’s newest book, Siete Esqueletos Decapitados, to have a nice reading for the road.
I was worried I would miss my 17:30 bus from Madrid to Cáceres, but I had plenty of time, and everything turned out just fine.
Just as I was reading the last page of Toño’s book, when the bus was about to leave, Rhonda and Weasel boarded the bus — Great! Instead of five boring hours on my own (if possible, take the train — The traffic to leave Madrid is really really not fun), I had five boring hours with good company.
After some strange repositioning of my clothes and other contents of my bag (read: My bike!) in several grossly underoptimal configurations, we arrived at Residencia Universitaria Muñoz Torrero around 23:00. We greeted some people. About 90 minutes later, and after a verrry nice and needed shower, I was already deep asleep.
…Today, I woke up shortly after 10AM. Rushed for breakfast (and still got some! ☻), and headed to the first presential orga-team meeting for me this year.
¡DebCamp has started!

I think you were just at the rush hour traffic with your bus. There was no traffic problem whatsoever with buses around noon.
