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.

Anyway, I can say I have been on the continent of Africa. Here’s looking at you, kid! (Casablanca, ...
... this forest is sacrosanct and untouchable, I’ll bet that’ll change as the price of land keeps going up and up. Finally the forest abruptly ends, there a radar tower on a hill aimed at the nearby Mohamed V airport, and a stretch of open, rocky slope… And then then, houses start popping up again, shabby country homes of the natives of this area.
