Tangier. November, 2010

Can you see that Dr. Blake is smiling? Maybe that's because we're on our way out of the chaotic bustle of the medina and headed back to the safety of our ship. In our few hours in Tangier, we'd been threatened by a fruit seller, witnessed lambs being prepped for slaughter in the street (it was the eve of a major Islamic feast day), gotten lost in the Kasbah and had to ask directions out in French, and been approached by some pretty inventive "mosquitoes" (people seeking to be our "guides.") Still, we got a brief taste of the evocative and mythical city that prepared us to visit Casablanca, Rabat and Agadir several years later.
