We woke surprisingly chipper after a sleep in (it wouldn't last) and headed off for a breakfast as meager as the previous day, following it up with a trip to a restaurant get an actual meal to start us off. Back at the hotel we checked in on the others from the night before and found them in a bit of a state. With our bus leaving at 2pm, there wasn't much to do except pack bags and have a last look around the city. The evils of the previous night eventually caught me up and we had ...

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.

The kitchen was well-designed for lessons, with TV screens in front of each station, along with all necessary ingredients. Sam made his more spicy, and we all enjoyed the brilliance of our own culinary accomplishments for dinner. We got a short lesson in other Moroccan favorites, including bastilla, which is a sweet and savory meat pie that is usually served only ...

... during the Hispano-Moresque period, characteristic of simple yet masterful craftsmanship and luxury, The Koutoubia Mosque is argued to be most beautiful and proportioned mosque in the world. Hajar, Shaymah, Bayaan and I prayed Maghreb and Isha in the Masjid. We made wudu in the courtyard with the locals. There was a fountain all the men were making wudu in and the women take a small pail for wudu by the lime trees. They drink water out of a ...
