Weekend away: Tangier

To honor our presidents, Colin and I spent last weekend in the port city of Tangier, soaking up the relaxed vibes of people who can easily get out and enjoy a beach.

Our afternoons were whiled away in the enclosed patio of beautiful Dar Jameel: Wolf Hall, jazz, and big decisions about the near future. We visited the only American historical site located abroad, what had been our original embassy in Morocco. We watched Spain while keeping honeybees out of our mint tea. Popeye served up my birthday dinner.

Fresh-squeezed tangerine juice, french fries in my sandwich: I like Tangier.
