Tangier, A Four Part Mini-series

11 Apr

Hello! In an effort to keep updates happening, here is Part 1 of the Tangier mini-series! The next part will air when I get the pictures up. So…who knows. Stay tuned!

I write this from my lovely sick bed (this was written last week), aka my bed in my room, as currently I’m going through a hellacious battle with the bacteria in my stomach, also known as food poisoning. THANK YOU, MERZOUGA (another post). Anyway, the weekend of the 25th-27th of March our AMIDEAST program headed to Tangier and Chefchaouen, in the north of Morocco (thus the north of Africa. Thus the tip of a whole continent. Omg.)

Our first stop on our long voyage north (ignoring the rest stop which is quite boring) was the Cave of Hercules. Legend has it that Hercules, in between completing his twelve Herculean tasks, spent the night here. Yeah, basically we visited the equivalent of “The Beatles stayed here” except ancient mythology style. The cave was fine, nothing to sniff at, but the view from the cliffs and rocks outside were BEAUTIFUL. I love the ocean so.

We also made a quick stop at a lighthouse. …just because, apparently.
