That could still count as a "new discovery" because I'm seeing new things in this city--things that weren't here back in ...
... Or maybe not. As I near the coast, I see a cluster of houses unlike anything I've seen in Morocco. "Houses" is definitely an overstatement, these are really just lean to shelters made of posts and scraps of plastics.
