Ceuta, Spanish Morocco

DSC_0455Nestled along the north coast of Africa, just 17 miles across the sea from Gibraltar, lies the beautiful Spanish enclave of Ceuta. Bordering Morocco, the Islamic and Christian cultures here seem to blend seamlessly and without the uncomfortable underlying tension we often feel in Germany. With only a few hours stay here it’s impossible to really know what’s going on. But it’s just a feeling. We think a major difference here is that these two societies have both lived in this area for so many generations that co-existence is just normal. Perhaps the rest of Europe will be like this one day.

In any case, Ceuta is a wonderful town and an enjoyable stop for anyone visiting the north coast of Africa.
