No matter how many times I go to Tarifa, the south of the south of Spain, it always surprises me when I see Morocco there, closer than I always expect.

14.4 km. That's the distance between Europe and Africa.

@xiroux @polarhare one of my first memories is when I was 3 years old, we went to that area and I asked my dad "hey, what's that island?" And he answered "that island... Is Africa!"

That was absolutely mind boggling to me, and I remember it as if it was yesterday

@xiroux @polarhare Surprisingly from Tanger you can see Gibraltar. That shocked me the first time

@yabirgb @polarhare Yes! The rightmost part of the photo shows the beginning of the Tanger port.
