We are in Tanger-Med, a brand new sea port 40 Km east of the city of Tanger in Morocco. In a few hours our ferry to Sete in France will leave and we will say good bye to the African continent.

We were completely and thoroughly searched before departing from morocco and we had to unload the entire car, which took almost an hour. They were very interested in our handicraft souvenirs from Mali and asked if we had been to Egypt…. We guess the Malian “making-look-old-technique” works well enough to impress the Moroccan customs. But overall the officials were actually very friendly so it was no problem.

We are looking forward to a day of rest at sea and the buffet, of course…. Mathijs + Christoph
