August 17 – Took a Taxi (2.5 hr. ride) from Chefchouen to Tanger. It impressed us as relative modern city with a nicely developed water front on the edge of the Mediterranean Sea.
It was founded in the early 5th century BC by Carthaginian colonists. The modern city now shows different new tourist and business projects.

In the evening we strolled through the Medina and along the waterfront. We played two games of Settlers and spent the night in Tanger. Walked 11.5 km today.
