TANGIER

Tangier lies on the North African coast at the western entrance to the Strait of Gibraltar where the Mediterranean meets the Atlantic Ocean off Cape Spartel. The multicultural placement of Muslim, Christian, and Jewish communities and the foreign immigrants attracted writers like Paul Bowles, William S. Burroughs, Jack Kerouac, Tennessee Williams, Brion Gysin and the music group the Rolling Stones, who all lived in or visited Tangier.

Tangier

Tangier was also the world's first and famous gay resort - a role it maintains to a lesser degree today. Tangier is very popular to tourists and Moroccan holiday makers and it has beautiful beaches to entertain them. Tangier has three sources of wealth; the port, Cannabis and ferrying would-be immigrants. Tangier is energetic, very likeable, extremely individual with an enduring peculiarity.
