This past weekend, my boyfriend and I left the speeding cars and dusty air of Casablanca for a few days in sunny Tangier. Tangier lies right where the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea come together, and is known for its beautiful beaches. It was a little cold for swimming or sunbathing, but we still enjoyed walking around the city and enjoying how calm it is compared to Casa. I also really liked our walk in the evening, following a seafood feast near the ocean. There were lots of people walking around at night, and it felt very safe to be out. I also loved the view of the city we got from a rooftop; the combination of hills, ocean, occasional dark red walls, and colorful laundry hung out to dry made for a very stunning landscape.
It was nice to be reminded that not every city in Morocco has as much traffic as Casablanca, and I always find it refreshing to see mountains, hills, and the ocean. It was a much needed break!
