A charming boutique villa that oozed ambience. I felt like Rudyard Kipling in Africa. Our room was furnished in antiquated (dare I say, 'safari' style) furniture. The wardrobe/chest of drawers was a beautifully crafted leather and wooden chest on wheels, the writing desk a portable wooden chest with leather inlaid writing surface and the wooden framed chairs foldable with stretched leather seats. A peaceful central patio/courtyard area fills the villa with light from the glass roofed top that opens during the day allowing the little local sparrows in. View from the top of the villa is great and it is 500m from the Bus station.

After we pointed out to one driver that we knew the normal rate was 2 dh, he replied, "But you are tourists." He accepted our 5 dirham (with ...
... the way. All over Morocco we've passed police check points on the road where they may or may not pull you over to check your vehicle registration. We'd been stopped once before on our ten day trip and Hamid had to show all his paper work, license, registration, insurance, tourist operators license etc, as well as dig out the warning sign from under all our luggage which he has to carry by law in case of break down. Of course all ...
... or laying on the sand means that you WILL instantly get
covered in the stuff. It gets in your eyes, mouth, ears, hair, and
you will very often get whipped by the sand every time the wind blows
around you (which is all the time). IF you can stand this, then
stripping off is your next problem. If it wasn't for the wind,
Essaouira would be lovely and hot...but with the wind, it is not. It
can sometimes border on cold (especially at night). So if you want ...
... hung on a clothes line in the window, and then small pieces are torn off and used to wrap the meat before sticking it on the brochette.
Since there is a whole sheep that needs to be eaten, people continue to eat meat all the time the following days. A lot of businesses are closed and schools are off until next Monday too. I have had more meat in 2 days than what I have had in a long time! The fun thing is that the
local people ...
