This will be short as the keyboards here are a bit different and it is difficult to type. We arrived in Tangiers by ferry and everything was quite easy. It was drizzling when we arrived but it cleared up later: Our hotel is in the medina which is the old part of town. Every city has a medina. The hotel was built in 1930 and all the spys gathered here during WW II. We were met by our guide and a private driver: Morocco is all hustle and bustle. Cars share the streets with motorcycles, bikes; pedestrians, and donkeys pulling carts. We were taken to a very exclusive hotel to have lunch: It overlooks the ocean and is very swanky: They told us to order the fish since we are by the sea. We each ordered a different kind and each was delicious: Even Randy said so and you know Randy does not like fish unless there is tartar sauce: After that they took us to ride camels on the beach
I must say I am glad we have a guide. This country is overwhelming. We met a young couple on the ferry that were going to be here for ten days with no guide. Now that I am here I am realizing how gutsy they are.
We will eat dinner at the hotel tonight: Just think .... we had breakfast in Europe and dinner in Africa.
I am getting frustrated with this sticky keyboard so I will say Bon Jour for now.
Did I mention French is Morocco's second language?
