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 …
... is why I encourage you to Google it! During our tour we also stopped in a leather tannery, which was fascinating. We were brought up to a terrace where we could see the whole tannery, and were handed some mint to hold under our noses to help mask the terrible smell of the tannery. They use everything from spices to pigeon poop to dye the skins they use to make leather, so the smell is pretty terrible. In the tannery we went ...
... for the visit to Essaouira the next day, this time by a Bus. Supr@tours, the bus company people, also seem to own the Railways in Morocco. The bus promptly left at its designated time of 8.30 am - thankfully, we covered the 200 odd km in less than 2 hours, with a 15 minute break at a roadside Inn in a market town enroute.

... the residences in the Medina do not have bathtubs or showers, public bathhouses or hammans are still in regular use.)

I quickly learned that this was how the water in the hamman was heated. Yikes. The guys shoveling the wood and goat feet – seriously I saw him throw one on the fire) into the oven had ...
... no crying. Luckily, they didn't find the 2 kilos of weed and the box of kittens under my seat! Ok it's now Sunday and we have been in Fes one night. So far our Fes experience has been rather lame. The hotel again new has ****** air conditioning, we're moving to a new hotel today. I have a feeling some of these hotels their air conditioning systems are came old and need to be replaced, the hotel last night was really just blowing warm room air round. Hopefully we will have good ...

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.
