May 1, 2012

On May 1, 2012 we left the Mediterranean and arrived in Tangier, Morocco. Today we had a tour that took us over the Rif Mountains for views of the Atlantic and then to Cap Spartel, a point where the Mediterranean and Atlantic meet. We then rode to Hercules’ Cave, a grotto, where the cave was filled with all sorts of vendors & crafts. On our way back to Tangier, we stopped at the Hotel Ahlen, for a refreshment.

Our final stop was the Medina (old town) of Tangier. Here we walked the narrow streets and alleys, viewing the many souks and seeing the local people. We also stopped at a carpet demonstration and the Kasbah Museum. On our way out of Tangier we got a different view of Cap Spartel as we crossed in front of the Strait of Gibraltar.
