We arrive in Algeciras at 10.30pm after leaving about an hour late. Obviously our first stop has to be to try to get money. We ask a policeman directions to an ATM and a short walk later and same result, no go! Ok, now things are a little awkward..... We have a hotel booked about 30 kms away, but no money to get there. It's late, dark and soooo frustrating! Kevin spots a money changer and although we have been assured we cannot change dirhams, I have found some Australian dollars in my wallet that may just save us! But wait, we CAN change our dirhams!!!!! We are somewhat elated and the man at the money changer speaks English, so is kind enough to get us a taxi and tell the driver where to take us. It really is quite comical because we now have around 76 euros and whilst taxis were exceedingly cheap in Morocco, we are speeding our way to our hotel with no idea how much it will cost........
