... grounds and ruins were huge, and well worth clambering over we spent considerable amount of time there. It was then lunch which today we wanted to try the Pastilla (pronounced bastila) this is a traditional snack like meal, or starter inherited from Andalus, used to be made with pigeons, nowadays shredded chicken instead, shaped like a meatpie, it combined sweet and salty flavours wrapped in a phyllo like pastry which is crisp.

But let's give it a shot.

... Moroccan adventurers. But I have passed a few people that looked like locals, dressed in their best attire, walking or riding mules up this trail--even older ladies. This is a bit odd. These folks clearly aren't doing this for fun--and they don't look like their going to herd goats or looking for firewood...
