An easy geocache for all visitors of Tanger.
When we started to plan our geoexpedition to Portugal we decided to visit Morocco and find Tanger’s only cache. Unfortunately the cache had been archived before we actually made our trip. So to make ourselves happy we decided to go on with our plan nevertheless and hide a brand new cache. Hopefully we will please also other geocachers who were going to earn "an African point“ :)
Tangier / Tanger is a major city in northern Morocco with a population of approximately 974,000. It is located on the North African coast at the western entrance to the Strait of Gibraltar where the Mediterranean Sea meets the Atlantic Ocean off Cape Spartel. It is the capital of the Tangier-Tetouan Region and of the Tangier-Asilah prefecture of Morocco.
The history of Tangier is very rich, due to the historical presence of many civilizations and cultures starting from before the 5th century BCE. Between the period of being a strategic Berber town and then a Phoenician trading center to the independence era around the 1950s, Tangier was a refuge for many cultures. In 1923, Tangier was considered as having international status by foreign colonial powers, and became a destination for many European and American diplomats, spies, writers and businessmen.
The city is currently undergoing rapid development and modernization. Projects include new tourism projects along the bay, a modern business district called Tangier City Center, a new airport terminal and a new football stadium. Tangier's economy is also set to benefit greatly from the new Tanger-Med port.

About the cache
This is a micro cache and is placed near one of the gates to the Medina. Put it back according the hint so the cache can last as long as possible. Thank you.
Many thanks to moss2s for promise of future maintenance.
ATTENTION - The cache will be archived 31.12.2017 at the latest.
The cache keeps disappearing and as I am 2200 km away from the coordinates I am not able to do the maintenance.
