Spain and Morocco - March 30th, 2011

The Strait of Gibraltar is a narrow strait that connects the Atlantic Ocean (left) to the Mediterranean Sea (right), and separates Spain in Europe (above) from Morocco in Africa (below).

Most of the land visible in southern Spain and Portugal, as well as coastal northwestern Morocco, appears green and fertile. The terrain in Morocco south of the Rif Mountains, on the other hand, is dry desert.
