Armas Essalama

Taken in Tarfaya
Photo from series 80 Miles to Atlantis on the coast of Tarfaya, a town in the South of Morocco.The plan the city had in mind for economic growth was tourism. A ferry line, Armas Assalama, was opened in 2008. Back in the day, Armas Assalama, connecting Puerto Rosario to Tarfaya was supposedly what would make the city another door to Africa and bring thousands of tourists a year from the Canary Islands, also generating a bunch of work opportunities in Tarfaya besides the small port business. The ferry crashed after 4 months and 42 trips only. In a lifetime of 4 months, it had become a new attraction for the locals that did expect a lot from it.
