Sorry it's been so long since I last blogged. To keep you up to date (I'm sure you are because you've read my dad's blog, but I'll continue anyway), we let Torre del Mar and had a relatively uneventful trip down to Gibraltar. We had one eventful passage when we arrived in Gibraltar in a heavy fog -- and I mean heavy! We almost ran over a freighter (or rather made an unidentifiable ping on the side of the boat as we ran into it).
But since Gibraltar we've mad it to Smir and here. Smir is a nice and very remote. The downside to the remoteness is the lack of supplies. The closest big town is Tetouan which is an hour's bus ride away. But, the marina is clean and cheap compared to the Italian marinas (but literally it isn't that expensive). Our boat is side tied up to a Spaniard living in Smir and a German, both of which we've made friends with.
Now, about Chefchaouen... So far our stay here has been very enjoyable and full of unique experiences. The medina is very like the old European cities with winding and narrow cobblestone streets. In fact the city was occupied by the Spaniards in Morocco's recent history (I don't know when).
We're staying at Casa La Palma, which is owned by Carlos and Ana. They are really nice people and Ana took us shopping today. Since we would probably pay 2 or more times the regular price if the shopkeepers knew we spoke only English, she agreed to go with us to buy a blanket. We found a handmade one for 100 MAD (dirham). 100 dirham equals about $12.50, which is a very good deal, considering the quality.
Ok, well gotta go now. My dad want's me to post a photo on his blog.
