Algiers

Spent a day in Algiers. I was excited to go there, and to be in Africa for the first time. Algiers is the capital of Algeria. Berber, Arabic and French are the 3 languages spoken the most. The people at the port were excited to have us visit, and Algiers police provided a police escort to make sure we could navigate through the city and out to the countryside without traffic problems. Howard's back was really painful so he wasn't able to sightsee. But he insisted that I go, so I did. I had paid for an excursion to see the Royal Mausoleum of Tipaza. The excursion turned out to be way more than that - wonderful day out in Algeria.

City was happy to have tourists.  A police escort was provided to clear out the traffic, as our port time was only 10:30 to 6.

Not sure what it was.  Our coach headed off to the Royal Mausoleum of Mauretania, maybe an hour away
