Stuck in Tangiers for now …

It’s been three hours that I’ve been stuck in Tangerville train station, but everyone has been really nice to me so far, especially since I saw 4 Americans asking questions and getting the complete cold shoulder from everyone. The first question everyone has asked me, “Where are you from?” … upon the reply of Trinidad … the quizzical looks start. Then I start explaining where Trinidad is and then they just start with more questions 🙂

The Tangerville train station is spanking new, with tons of security. I feel much better here than I did at the STM bus station.

Getting from the Port to the Tangerville train station, is as simply as finding a “small taxi” … they’re these little blue cars. The ride should be about 20 dirhams, even though I paid my “Big taxi” … beige Mercedes … 40 dirhams, but he was nice enough to wait for me outside, while I found out about the train and the delays.

Now time to head off and take a bus to Kenitra, and then connect to a train to Fez. Hopefully an earthquake doesn’t hit!
