    Upon arrival were some bikes waiting like we will.
    Sounds like they choose small bikes... I'm wondering why....:D

    See the guy with an orange Tshirt. Pierre and his brother Laurent have 2 400XR. perfect bikes for Enduro in Morocco.
    We will learn later that some kms after having leaved Tangier, Pierre had troubles with the engine. As we're back now, we'll investigate.

    Tangier white harbour is becoming visible on the blur horizon. I'm talking with an old chap, a moroccan leaving in Normandy (quite a shock for him I guess), about the Hercules's pilars, the end of the world for the ancient greeks.

    We bought before taking the boat some ham, peanuts and beers to make the boring journey on the boat more sexy.
    But we hadnt thought that we needed it after......
    It was Sunday and we needed to reach Fes by the end of the day.
    So we stopped to eat what we had... that was.... ham, peanuts and beer.
    But more on this later.....

    you saw previously our terrific breakfast, the accident.
    As those pictures were taken by Christian and as he were looking for a handlebar for the ktm, he didnt have any picts of the event.
    But before taking off again, he shot this.

    Now, let's ride. Destination for today is Outat el Hajj.
    If I'm not mistaking, means the wise, when a muslim went to the mecque.
    But wisdom was in the town but not in your favourite bikers......

    Guys, is it snow I'm seeing ?
    Is it cold I'm feeling ?
    Is it night I'm foreseeing ?
    nearly 18:00. nothing around....
    we need to find some place to sleep.
    In the great outdoors is not an option I want to think about... way too cold.
