... come from the visitors on that front.
Back to the room for 15M of journal before dinner. Something went wrong when trying to save it so lost it; grr.
Down at 1915 in my Springbok's jersey. I wasn't sure if we'd be dining outside. Helen of Troy suggested All Black jerseys are fine in Oz as the Aussies respect the NZ side but there is less recognition for the talent of the Springboks.
Off by bus to dining at El Birja, a nice spot just inside ...

We continued down the steps and through a myriad of rooms containing magnificent mosaics recovered from many of the Roman ruins in the area. (I was told that this museum had the second best collection of Roman mosaics behind the Bardo museum, and I believed it. There were some simply stunning and virtually intact mosaics that still evidenced bright, vibrant colours.)

After enjoying the treasures inside the museum we walk around the courtyard or garden terrace oustide. It's good to feel the sun and enjoy the views from the elevated position of the Kasbah. We look over the port, the medina and other parts ...
After a walk back in time we decide that a journey back to the hotel by cab would be preferable to the land train. We don't have any problem finding a cab, sitting just outside the medina under the shade of a tree seems to be a sign that you need a cab!
It's interesting ...
