43km Sidi Moussa – El-Jadida
Considering we both didn’t feel at our peak, the distance covered was encouraging. Most of the field workers hadn’t gotten up by the time we started our journey so we had a quieter run than the day before. Again following the coast road north we saw more wonderful waves crashing. But about halfway to El-Jadida, near Port de Jorf-Lasfar, more chemical and industrial complexes appeared and we tried to speed up and move by them. The fumes really burn our throat and eyes. After resting a few times we reached El-Jadida, a large city. The campground was a bit hard to find since we didn’t see the normal signage. Perhaps it exists on the more major roads, but we needed to ask the local police for directions every few intersections.
Just after lunch we put our tent up: a little extra time to rest and have a couple once-over inspections on the bikes. By the time we get back to Europe there’s a good layer of dust and sand that will need to come off and perhaps we will replace the chains.
