Out of Africa


Marites and I did our level best to recreate the magic of old Tangier and its expats yesterday, with visits to Cafe Hafa overlooking the sea, and a fabulous lunch at El Morocco Club (highly recommended, one of the best meals of the trip) as well as dinner at the moroccan restaurant at the El Minzah hotel. In between we wandered the medina and souks and sea-face  walking all the way.  We have not had great internet while here which is why there have been so few pics uploaded, I will try to upload them all in the next few days. We leave in an hour or so for the boat to Tarifa, where my friends Jose and Andres will meet us. We will spend a few days with them in the south before getting on the train for Madrid and flying out on Saturday. With the lone exception of my terrible back pain, Morocco has been a total delight, and I would definitely come back. I would spend more time in Fez especially, and explore Marrakech in greater detail. I would also visit more small towns and kasbahs I think, but overall I am thrilled and grateful for all the amazing experiences and discovery. The hospitality of friends old and new really made this trip something special, and I won’t soon forget it. So goodbye for now, Africa. I have a feeling I will be back.
