Before I went to Morocco I went to Melilla.
I loved it. There is the most surreal 8KM hike you can do from Melilla to Nador. Very, very difficult to accept that the world can change so much in such a short distance. From European style promenades to the apparent chaos, dust and rubbish of a Moroccan market. Across no-mans land. A very strange collection of holiday chalets, social clubs and military buildings shadowed by a border crossing perimeter fence, and onwards into a very different world. I'll come back to this another time. I spent hours taking photographs around border crossings. Fascinating places.
