Another Week on the Beach

September 23rd, 2009 by · 3 Comments · Africa, Morocco

Kester forgot to mention two important things. One, Taghazoute is drier than Zion. And two, the surf doesn’t really kick in until November.

Our apartment is excellent; a kitchen, a cat, and a balcony that, if you fell off at high tide, would land you in the ocean.

We found a liquor store in the hub city on an errand day. It requires a passport just to browse, but the wine is cheap and delicious and three bottles cost less than a tube of sunscreen.

The Saudi Royal family has a place about ten kilometers down the road. It’s five times the size of this entire town, gated, and surrounded by military. They arrived with police escorts yesterday. We showed up relatively unannounced a few days before that.
