hopping over to chefchaouen, morocco

Catching the bus in Tanger
     When traveling in Andalusia, it's popular to jump over to Africa for a day or two. Since we'd heard that Tangier is not much more than a busy port city, we took advice and bussed to Chefchaouen instead. We left Tarifa, Spain, on the first ferry of the morning and arrived in Tangier no more than 2 hours later. From there, we took a taxi to the bus station and caught a bus to Chefchaouen. We were immediately glad that we didn't stay in Tangier - it was chaotic, people harassing us and following us on the streets, asking for money or trying to con us however they could. By the time we got on the bus, we were already drained. Around five hours later and after a pitstop in Tetouan, we arrived in quiet little Chefchaouen and sighed relief.
