Fulfilling a long term ambition and dragging Annie along, We travelled to Melilla , a tiny castle enclave of Spain (still) from the 1500,s in the far East of Morocco. To get to this rarely visited city state we had to fly from Tunis to Barcelona where we slept in the airport with about 100 others and caught the early flight to Malaga and then an 8 hour ferry back to Melilla on the North African coast. It was worth it however because not only is it very interesting and historic, with a beautiful castle , it is very different from Ceuta, the main Spanish enclave and usual route to Africa. Melilla will be our only luxury for a while and we reversed our route to Malaga and travelled down the coast to La Linea de Conception and joined up with the group where we departed by truck to Ceuta and set foot on the African continent for the 3rd time in less than a week! On to Morocco and Afrique Noir.
