... ferry. We were the last to board and the trip across the straights of Gibraltar was a bit rough and we arrived safely into Tangier. We are in Africa. A 4 hour bus ride and were are in Chefchaouen which is a town in the Riff mountains. Had a nice dinner at 11pm. Our hotel room is very cute Moor doors. Fantastic nights ...
... from the ship. As I said, we arrived in Tanger Med and had to drive right into the middle of Tangier. Now, because Morocco isn’t in Europe (who knew that!), our GPS with her European & Russian maps wouldn’t work. So basically we drove from the port to Tangier not knowing where the duck we were going!

Friday morning we left for Morocco. I packed only my clothes, bottled water, cash, and a toothbrush. We took a three and a half hour bus ride to the coast of Spain (Tarifa) where we went through customs and loaded a ferry to take us to the other side. Technically, yes, I did see the Rock of Gibraltar but not in the way I would have wanted. In the midst of the other things that I got to see on this trip, the Rock of Gibraltar really isn't a priority at this point.
