The Kingdom of Morocco is a North African country. On a clear day you can see Europe across the Straights of Gibraltar. On our epic Euro Trip of 2010 we took a ferry from Algeciras, Spain (Europe) to Ceuta, Spain (Africa). Morocco has two Spanish exclaves along it's coast. So, even though we were on the continent of Africa, we were still staying in Spain. Weird.

It was wonderful to have a guide to lead us through the twists and turns of the "old town" medina in these two cities. We would have gotten hopeless lost without him. It was also fascinating to see the Riff Mountains and herders of sheep, goats and cow tending their flocks along the roads.

The Moroccan food, tea, architecture and culture is so beautiful and interesting! I would love to be able to spend a lot more time here.
