A nice little hostel right in the heart of town. Decent rooms for a budget hotel and very clean. Staff friendly and helpful. Great breakfast available at supplement...good value. The only downside is no safety deposit box...they tell you it's safe to leave in your room but we would never take that chance!

Its only 6:30pm and dinner isn't until 8:00pm so we hoof it back to the hotel and have a low key, room service dinner so we can go to sleep and wake up in the right time zone. East and sleep were the priorities ...
... even in traditional countries like Morocco. Now, if only I could convince Moroccans that they can eat cactus leaves (as we do in Mexico)...half the vegetable shortage problems would be solved... Down to the Beach I'd determined that I wasn't going to do any sightseeing on this hike--just focus at getting from Point A to Point B... but the beach is just over a sand dune a few hundred meters away... and it would be so much more fun to do part of this hike along ...
