David's aunt takes him to Barcelona's train station. He buys a one-way ticket to Granada and goes to the platform to wait for the train. With the Arco train, it's a long trip. In Granada he calls Daniel's landline. He's a friend David had met as a student in Boston. Daniel's girlfriend Rosa answers and gives him directions to their place.
