We enjoyed a fairly extensive breakfast at the hostel of all sorts of Moroccan bread, coffee and freshly squeezed orange juice. We were always cheeky and ordered mint tea too as we knew it was going to be too hot to eat lunch during the day so went all out in the mornings.
After breakfast we miraculously managed to weave our way through the mini alleyways, streets and stalls tucked around the route from our riad to the ...
