Anastasiall's Monday July 23rd, 2012
Day trip to morocco begins at 4am when my alarm barks and my eyes open in anticipation. The boys think it hilarious that they were stupid enough to get drunk and not go to be until 3:30 without even setting alarms. I'm so ready to not have to take care of children anymore! I wasn't gonna let that keep me from going to Africa, so I poured water on the stubborn & moaning kids until they woke up. Alas, after a lucky taxi, we made it on our bus and toward Tarifa, the popular windsurfing city. The bus ride, as usual, was terrific with beautiful sights of the countryside and old Arabic architecture. A quick ferry ride and we were in the shore of Tangier!
From there, we took a bus ride through the Spanish, French and Italian neighborhoods, and began our walk in the older part of town. Then through the bazaar, where we saw small shops full of brightly colored and neatly designed
cloths, carpets and other touristy items. We saw a presentation on carpets, and another on homeopathic medicines; men used to court the women by presenting carpets!
Another scenic ride down to the city, a ferry and bus back home, and that was it for Africa. The next day at the hostel was my first lazy day in 2 months- I slept in, read, watched a movie, slept, read and went to bed!
