I was a bit suspect at seeing the #1 Rating that Dar Jand had received until we arrived in Morocco and were greeted by Andrew.at the docks. After a short walk to Dar Jand in the center of the Medina, we were intoduced to Janet and taken upstairs to our rooms and then on up to their deck for tea and the magnificent views of the city. Janet and Andrew were the perfect hosts and their B&B was located in the center of the Medina within easy walking distance to the markets and shops that make up this interesting piece of real estate in this part of the world. Our introduction to Tangier was anything but the typical Hollywood version,that I'm sure ,deters many visitors from coming here. Andrew had some wonderful tips to finding our way about the city. Subtle markings to insure that we understood where we were in relation to the B&B. Janet joined us for a typical lunch in a local cafe and then they turned us loose with a friend of theirs who showed us other parts of the city.......quite a hike but well worth the effort. That evening our Hosts served up our dinner options and we decided on a most unexpected place just around the corner. A wonderful cuisine with wine available, made our first nite in Morocco a memorable one. Next day it was out for some shopping under Andrew's guidance and then headed out of town to a beach resort for sunset cocktails and a lovely seafood dinner. It was so very comforting to be under the watchful eye of both Andrew and Janet which made our stay just that much more enjoyable. As we were due to leave the next morning, Andrew was up early and down to the docks to reconfirm our boat departure. As expected, our scheduled 35 minute boat ride (that actually takes 90 minutes) was running an hour late. We bid our farewells to Janet and Andrew and headed down to the docks for our return trip to Tarifa. It was indeed a wonderful 3 days made even more enjoyable by our gracious hosts Janet and Andrew who had shared their city with us. Thanks to the both of them and the outstanding B&B they call Dar Jand.
