Asia -> Spain: Holy Crap that's a long way!

I’ve been hearing a lot of press recently about the Canary Isands being the port of harbor for African illegal immigration to Europe. The geography makes good sense. The Canaries are only 150 miles (give or take) off of Morocco. Not entirely dissimilar to the Cuban and Haitian boat refugees trying for Florida.

However, this load of people came a lot farther. All the way from (they suspect) Pakistan and Sri Lanka!

Wow. I quail under the thought of what those people went through during their trip.
