|The port expansion has the approval of the man upstairs.|
As regular readers of this blog know, I've spent a lot of time in Tangier in the past three years. In that time I've seen a lot of changes. When I first visited, Tangier was pretty tattered. It city had gone from being a thriving Mediterranean port in the first half of the 20th century to a decaying city overlooked in favor of places like Fez and Rabat.
Now there's a new flood of development. The government of King Mohammed IV is working with various corporations to invest heavily in the north and Tangier is reaping the benefit. The port is being expanded, new hotels are springing up, and old buildings are being renovated. It should be interesting to see what it will be like in a few years!
|Historic facades are being preserved as the buildings behind them get redone.|
|Hopefully the old signs will be preserved as well.|
