The urban maze of Tangier

I’m back in Morocco, a decade later. But this time I’ve arrived at the gritty city of Tangier.

The old Medina is full of fascinating gates and narrow alleys, where I blend in like Moby Dick at a NIN concert. Under the watchful gaze of old men occupying the streets, I keep on walking along winding streets.

I’m busy following in the footsteps of Jason Bourne (Bourne Ultimatum), Dom Cobb (Inception) and James Bond (both Spectre and Living Daylights had scenes in the city), not to mention real life individuals such as William S. Burroughs who wrote Naked Lunch in the Hotel el-Muniria during the 1950s.

There are exciting things waiting around every corner and my bucket list is long, but the Medina has a mindset of its own regarding time and space.
