Woke up in Algeciras in Spain. Pleasant short walk to harbour. Caught a shuttle to Tarifa at 8:00 and boarded the FRS fast ferry to Tangier at 9:00, arriving Tangier at 9:00! Back in our home continent with its usual hustle and bustle, punting tour guides and taxi drivers. Simple process to get taxi (60 MAR / 5 €) and change money at harbour …
... us. I wanted to get to the main road as I knew where that led, so we were walking left out towards the big highway thing but that was fine as we know we get lost in little streets anyway. Fes is a lot more chilled than marrakech, roads aren't quite as mad, u still get bikes clinging onto lorries to make them go faster and people cutting each other up, and we did witness a little car crash today actually, saw a bus driver on his phone, all lovely stuff, but even this is still ...
... buff 60-something year old - gets you to lie down, and he scrubs you down with this black paste-like soap. What we didn't get was the scrubdown with an exfoliating glove - although we saw that demonstrated on other people. Then after being doused with a few more 10s of litres of water, you get a "massage".

So I walked into the cafe pointed at the pastry that I wanted and smiled and shrugged my shoulders as the girl behind the counter said some words in French that I did ...
... Aí nao sei o que aconteceu, se bateu saudades do mundo ocidental, mas acabamos entrando no mc donalds que tinha lá do lado e comemos. Logo após lembramos que era dia 24 e que tinhamos comido isso de ceia de natal. Lamentavel.
Bom, ja tava escuro e fomos tentar pegar um taxi pra voltar. Pegar taxi a essa hora é treta. Tem muita gente na mesma situação, só que eles fazem isso todo dia e já sabem o segredo do sucesso. Na avenida tinha uma pá de gente, todo ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsRiad Le Ksar de Fes
Arrived after long day traveling - ferry, train & grands taxi, had a lovely swim and lazy meal.
Friendly people. Clean. Spacious.
Lovely dinner. Breakfast.
Far out of town so ideal of you have your own transport. Taxi expensive and public transport to here atrocious. Bus stop in nearby village Ain Chaggag. Bus late, cramped and had to walk from bus stop.
