|Name of walk||A Walk Around Tangier|
|Date of walk||2012-09-13|
This particular cruise included a few places we had never been before, plus we could explore every destination on foot.
Tangier at dawn. It is about a 25 minute walk through the port into the Medina.
Looking over to the Medina.
We took a circuitous route around the Belvedere, heading up through the non-touristy areas towards the main town. Cafe de Paris in the Place de France. A notorious meeting place for agents during World War Two.
We sat and sipped a glass of hot sweet mint tea in the Grand Socco.
We then headed through into the souk for the Petit Socco and the haunts of William Burrows, Tennessee Williams, Allen Ginsberg and Jack Kerouac.
We set the compass for north!
Loads of cats roam the souks.
The museum in the Kasbah..... We then re-set the compass for south and hoped to make it back to where we started!
Heading back to the port.
Time for a bit of relaxation before we leave port.
Panorama of the view from the ship.
Bye bye Tangier.
Ohhhhh big mountains!
Watching the sunset.
There it goes!
Next stop Gibraltar!
