Tangier is over the sea from Spain. It's close enough to be able to use european mobile phone providers.

75% (by my estimation) of petit taxi drivers here attempt to overcharge. One tried to charge me the nighttime rate during the day and then doubled it for good measure. Others didn't like to use the meter, instead prefering to make up a large number. Arguing about it was great fun - generally ending with me telling them where I was staying and inviting them to call the police.

There is also an truly amazing restaurant.
