... given way to the significantly more attractive greenery and whitewashed housing of the coast and the people here are a little more affluent and prosperous than the farmers we pass. It's a bit of a seaside resort for locals, we have even passed some log cabins being constructed obviously as holiday accommodation. We are rolling again. See you later. In Rabat and at the railway station we had just alighted from a taxi were getting our cases ...

The owner served me another plate of soup after I finished mine, he is like a dad, keep feeding :P Two of his young boys were sitting next to me, and was looking at me eating the whole time.
