Drive from Marrakesh to Essaouira

Essaouira – March 28, 2021 – Drive from Marrakesh to Essaouira, Morocco

By Tom Allin

After three days of taking, it easy at the Al Fassia Hotel in Marrakesh it was time to become explorers again.  We are doing nothing tough today after a pandemic caused layoff of one year.  We have a less than four-hour drive to Essaouira and I have already made hotel reservations with a hotel with parking.  Oh, to be so naïve.

We leave the hotel, drive out of Marrakesh, stop for gas, and hit the open road.  It didn’t take but a few minutes to again become comfortable with driving in Morocco.  Something new to contend with: it seems there is a police check point every 20 or 30 minutes that require us to come to a stop and either we are waved through or we have to pull over to show our passports.

As we entered a small town the policeman waves me over.  I put on my mask, roll down the window and the officer says, “Texaaasss, you are from Texaaasss”?  I say, “Yes, from Texas”.  He is smiling (no mask), we fist bump through my window and off we go.
