Road To Europe 2012 Ep.29
Shock of shocks. A temporary moroccan licence didn't cost me a dime. I had thought that I would be built on exit, but nothing like that full stop so I am out of the control point and right to Pier 8, where my ferry, The Fantastic sits.
now we all wait to board. And of course, i have reading easily to the head of the queue full stop boarding starts at about 3 hours to departure, and the fairy doors are not short till about 3 minutes to departure. we wait another 15 minutes, as another ferry has entered the harbour and is berthing.
Shortly after, we start to move, painstakingly slowly at first, (so there is no chance of hitting the pier), then, once we are cleared of the harbour mouth, it's full speed ahead. I check with the GPS and find that we are doing about 45 km/hr.
Nothing more to see, as it is dark already, and I go to look for something to eat. Sorry, but no Nigerian food in any of the three restaurants on board, and I have to settle for a kebab, which turns out fairly ok. Dinner done, I try to buy some wi-fi credit, but when that fails, I go off to sleep.
In the pullman seats, sleep could be better, as it gets pretty cold during the night, but I manage to get about 5 hours in before it's 7 a.m., i'm all the activity around me makes it impossible to continue. so after some breakfast and to see what the day will bring. I think I have about 8 hours of riding to get to paris from city, but I have to check with the map. I would love to see my girls tonight. That thought has me smiling already.
