What is making the palms burst? I am surprised there are any left if even only a few burst every night.

"Ceuta is one of a handful of Spanish possessions on the coastline of Morocco. Located on a peninsula jutting out into the Mediterranean, it offers a compact dose of fantastic architecture, interesting museums, excellent food, a relaxing maritime park and bracing nature walks. The city is particularly beautiful at night, a skyline of artfully lit buildings and bursting palms."

Shithole, obviously.

Lincs, With a week you could have done something really great, like a trip to Egypt or even Tunisia.
I've already been there and Egypt...several times.
Or Libya post Momar Ghadaffi.

I spent a night in Ceuta on our way to Morocco 18 years ago.
I d love to say have fun there, Linc, but ‘stay safe’ seems more appropriate.

Your comment reminds me of my one night stay in Georgetown, Guyana, a few decades ago (I had flown into Georgetown from Paramaribo, Surinam). I stayed at "Bill's Guest House" in Georgetown which probably doesn't exist anymore, but at that time it had a nice balcony overlooking the street below.
When I checked-in I met another traveler who told me that he was sitting on the balcony the night before and saw someone get mugged on the street below. His advice was, "Don't be on the street after dark." I followed his advice.

Let it not be said that Lincoln won’t listen to advice... I’m reconsidering my trip....I’m still going but I’m considering knocking Algeciras on the head, I’ve not heard a good word about it so I’m thinking of basing myself in Ronda instead.

Any opinions on Ronda? ( VinnyD only reply if you actually been)

Ronda is beautiful. I only spent an hour in Algeciras then headed quickly off to Cadiz, which I loved.

Ronda is stunning. Had a lovely lunch on patio overlooking the split gorge. A tour of the now defunct bullring was quite interesting.

Right... that’s it I’m changing my plans, I’ll be honest I’ve never heard of Ronda before I saw it on a documentary last week ... luckily I can cancel my hotel in Algeciras with no cost... any recommendations for places to stay in Ronda?

I' spent a few days in Ronda just before taking the boat across to Tangiers.

Great place, Nice setting.

Ronda is great, but we did it as a side trip and didn't stay over, so can't help with recommendations.

I just missed it last year around this time. Seemed like the weather was shit every time we tried to head that way from other parts of Andalusia.

Interesting to see the reality of things on the ground,Algeciras is awesome!...ok so on first arrival it looks nothing special and maybe I have just landed lucky by washing up here on Semana Santa but the centre of the town is buzzing,I'm hanging out around Plaza Alta and there's a big procession starting at 9pm....I've eaten an Apple and a bag of nuts all day and I'm hammered in a bar and the people are great...I've met nothing but friendly folks here all eager to help me with directions and finding somewhere to eat that serves vege food.... the bar I'm in now has 2 legs of some poor dead animal on the bar on some kind of spit and they keep offering me a slice of the murdered beast.

Can't believe some of you didn't like this place??

Awesome start!! I’m on the ferry now and they’re going to do a full emergency drill moving passengers around mid ocean.... it’s rammed packed so it’ll be interesting to see how many comply.

Worst comes to worst apply bulk blockout and don't try to swim against the tide as you'll either end up in Jaffa or Tenerife.

Also, disenfectant bacterial wipes are recommended for communal bongs.

Wow, Lincs, You turned what was thought to be a SHIT TRIP into something really INTERESTING AND IMPRESSIVE!
But WHO is that ugly old bald bastard in the photo? LOL.
Actually, you are looking good, Lincs, albeit STONED OUT OF YOUR MIND! Happy Travels!

No way. You are a guy with no hair on your head. Maybe it was all that dope that killed your hair follicles.
