      You can fly directly to Tangier (the city has an international airport), ferry (2 ports serve the city/region) or by train and bus from other Moroccan cities. There are 2 bus stations in the city – one is just a hub for CTM bus network and another one has multiple bus networks including CTM. To be born in a city like Tangier is not easy, and even less to grow up in it and feel part of it, it harbours contradictory feelings and sensations, let's say similar to the character of its people. Going from an old medina, fully deserved in its definition, to an insulting modernity in a matter of meters, is at least disconcerting but also, at an intimate level, to identify ourselves as.

    Tangier is a fascinating book about the oddball city itself, and the oddballs who have frequented it or lived there. As an "expatriate" currently living in Oaxaca, I understand well how truly cringeworthy we can be when we colonize another piece of paradise/5(4). An exhibit at Rotch Library features never-before-exhibited photographs of the early 20th – century International Zone of Tangier, Morocco. For centuries European powers battled one another and Moroccan forces for control of the city of Tangier, due to its strategic location on the Straits of Gibraltar, the point where the Mediterranean Sea meets the Atlantic Ocean.

Subsequently, from the beginning of the s, Tangier acquired the status of an international city.

This revised edition of a book first published in takes account of the number of changes which have occurred in the international city in the last quarter of a century. The International City of Tangier. A white-walled city perched between Morocco and Europe, Tangier was long a haven for the literary and artistic avant-garde—and black sheep—of Europe and America.

Now a new generation of residents are blending color, pattern, and taste to create an interior aesthetic all their own.THE archives of the American Legation at Tangier record that 74 years ago the Sultan of Morocco, disturbed at the predatory methods of certain European Powers who looked covetously in the direction of Morocco and particularly Tangier, expressed the desire to turn over his entire empire as a protectorate to the United States.

We were not then in the mood to assume transatlantic responsibilities. “Night Boat to Tangier” takes place over a hour period in the terminal building at Algeciras, where a pair of “fading gangsters from Cork City,” Charlie Redmond and Maurice Hearne, wait.
