The gang and I decided to treat ourselves and booked a whole apartment in Tangier.
It was a comfortable big space. It had a TV, a spacious living room, a kitchen, 2 bedrooms and 1 large bathroom.
However, there was one problem.
One day, there was no le water. No water from the faucet, for the shower, nothing. Biggie had a panic attack. For 9 days, he had endured countless haggling from Moroccans, endless “Do you want to see my carpets?”, “Let me give you a free tour.”, ” Just take a look- no buy”. And worse of all, no alcohol. And now, no water. Turns out the whole city had a water shortage that day.
Biggie- when he first started traveling in Morocco. He would approach anybody innocently and enthusiastically, not knowing they’d sell him stuff. Here, he’s buying le snails from this seller
He had hit his limit.
He went on a murderous rambling spree and threatened to leave Morocco right then and there and take the next ship to Spain. I hadn’t been in Tangier for long and wanted to see the city.
Thankfully, we managed to calm him down and convinced him to explore the city for one day (see previous post on Tangier medina). It paid off because we had a great time.
We wouldn’t have seen this gorgeous night medina
Or this view of the ocean by the colonial hillside
Or this rad vintage paintings
When we returned from our day trip, we found there was le water. Unfortunately, the water tank holds only enough water to heat for one shower. So we all took turns taking quick 2 minute showers.
