    Second-last night in Morocco

    ... and-sorry long lunch together to sink back cokes and plates of fries to atone for the festivities. Being Friday there were additional prayers going on and we sat for a time outside our hotel watching those praying during the day. Throughout the trip Ramadan has been a key part of the lives of those around us: the sleepy run of life during the day as shops remained closed and restaurants have no reason to trade; the bustle of the post-break fast evening and cities coming ...

    After breakfast we grabbed a local bus and headed back to the medina for a more informed tour of the area. We met our guide outside the large mosque from the previous night and got to know a little bit more about it - fitting 60,000 worshippers at a time, it was built immediately next to the ruins of another mosque that was torn down for being too liberal.

    ... many Moroccans prefer to dress traditionally. As it was quite cool many of the men dress in the Djellaba a traditional Berber long loose fitting robe and I could see that this may well have been an influence for the Jedi robes in the Star Wars films.

    We decided to try out lunch in the hotel and also order our first Moroccan wine which wasn't too bad at all. Morocco does produce wine but it ...

    ... and escaped off the tourist route, so we wouldn't be repeatedly directed to 'the big square overthere'. After an expensive lunch and a spectacular demonstration of Arab pride, spilling into a street fight complete with brandished bread knife, we located a street market. Fish sellers gutted buckets of sardines in the street, depositing large mounds of gut and spine onto the cobbles. It was a relief to be ignored by the stall holders and able to haggle and ...
