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.

... A random walk brought us out at the small square we discovered on the first day. We elected to eat at Nomad, trendy eatery in the modern Morocco/French style. The food was excellent but the service less so. We were given "second hand" bread and when this was pointed out it was met with the North African equivalent of the Gallic shrug. Won't be going there again !
I still haven't been allowed to buy a carpet - but it is only a matter of time.
... printed. Premium paper (laminate) wasn't available and they didn't do as good a job, but it will do. On way back, we hailed a horse and carriage. We were told by print shop director that the rate is 2 dh (25 cents) per person. Some drivers are honest and others will try to ask a "special tourist rate". 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 ...
... arrived, it was warm and sunny, great for an afternoon walk along the beach with the locals. It is the most "touristic" place that we have been so far, and definitely has a very laid-back vibe to it. Tonight, we head to a delicious fish restaurant to try the excellent seafood on offer. Tomorrow is a free day for us to wander the town, do some shopping at the local shops, and hang out at the beach. It's a nice place to unwind after the long days ...
... or something French like that. I recognized the 2nd one, cheques, but was unfamiliar with the first one, epèces, or something like that. When Jill first looked it up it meant aliens, but after she put in the accent, it meant CASH. What the hell was our riad doing sending us to a place that only accepts cash?!?! We ordered the cheapest things on the menu because our stash of Moroccan dirhams was running low. I ate an ugly pile of chopped crab with some garnish ...
... would make sure we were all clean. And clean here means: you scrub until you see the little black skin peelings, otherwise it is not clean enough!
So, after the hour+ of scrubbing and rinsing with hot water and sitting in a steaming warm room, one is quite exhausted, but the skin feels like a newborn; soft and clean! It is best to go home, rest and drink some tea and take a siesta. Since my first time at the hammam I have gone back ...
