Arrived after long day traveling - ferry, train & grands taxi, had a lovely swim and lazy meal.
Friendly people. Clean. Spacious.
Lovely dinner. Breakfast.
Far out of town so ideal of you have your own transport. Taxi expensive and public transport to here atrocious. Bus stop in nearby village Ain Chaggag. Bus late, cramped and had to walk from bus stop.

We waited awhile, and he made a phone call. Finally, a man came, and he took one of our bags. Hunter and I had the other ones. We walked quite ...
... tour of the tannery was really one big sales push to get you to buy an expensive leather jacket. The guides/salesmen were very good at the soft sell too. We saw 2 American girls each buy an ugly leather belt for us$78 which they likely wouldn't buy for $10 in the states. This led Dorothy to quip "I guess sheep aren't the only ones getting slaughtered here!". As the sales tactics ramped, it felt like they wouldn't let us leave if we didn't buy something. My ...
... it was relocated to Marrakech. It is now the capital of the Meknes-Tafilalet region.
Meknes was first inhabited in the 9th century by the Miknasa, a Berber tribe who originated from southern Tunisia. A fortress was established by the Almorids in the 11th century, and following wars with the Almohads and then an overthrow by the Merinids, it was rebuilt as a larger more fortified structure which incorporated a large number of mosques, kasbahs ...
