Driving on the N-16 road (Morocco) between Ceuta and Tangier [01:44]
Actually here I was not driving the car. I decided to give the steering wheel to my father who is far more used to drive on the (dangerous) Moroccan roads. In this video we just left Ceuta, which is a Spanish town next to the Moroccan territory and inside the African continent. I have not filmed the entire voyage on this road, and it is too bad. You have to know that the North of Morocco subished a big flood some days before I arrived there. This N-16 road subished a lot of damages. At the moment I was filming here I was not counscious of the gravity of the damages yet. Rocks, mud and rain from the uplands on the road. And more important : pits at the middle of the road ! The side of the road we stand that skims the precipices was very .... very dangerous. Sometimes there were even no barrier between the road and the precipices.

Cité Portugaise and El Jadida [03:30]
El Jadida is located just south of Casablanca on the Atlantic coast of Morocco. In the early 1500s the Portuguese took control of the town and built a fortified medina called Mazagan called "Cite Portugaise" by the locals. Mazagan is noted by UNESCO as an "outstanding example of the interchange of influences between European and Moroccan cultures" and as an "early example of the realization of the Renaissance ideals integrated with Portuguese construction technology". The ramparts are some of the most interesting in Morocco and are great fun for the local kids to jump off of. There are several other interesting sites within the walled medina including the five sided lighthouse (now the minaret of the grand mosque), the Church of the Assumption, the communal bakery and the impressive Portuguese Cistern which was used in George Orwell's film Othello.
