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.

... But come the founding of Israel the Jews of Essaouira had relocated there and only but a few now remained.
Anna messaged us to come to her riad to dine with her in the evening and to bring along some wine, so in a rain shower and through big puddles we found our way to the local alcohol shop to procure some Moroccan wine.
It was around the time now that Ian was arriving in town, and so I walked along flooded roads, quite far out to ...
... way to exfoliate and scrub! Im totally relaxed after the intense session and need a few buckets of cold water to liven me up.
Totally refreshed we head back to the hotel but walk slowly like wandering on a cloud after the relaxing Hamman session. We get changed and pickup our washing. Back to the streets for some food. This time its some shawarma, mixed kebab and some nutella crepes. Hit the bed while Jay watches Sherlock holmes on his laptop
... into a vibrant local "garage sale" (if there's a "Goodwill" in Morocco, by golly I'll FIND it!) where a cluster of scarf-clad matrons (at first clearly skeptical of a lone tourist with a camera barging into their cloistered midst) soon amicably melted (as I made it clear I wouldn't dream of snapping photos in such a private domain.) Indeed, eventually I negotiated for a somewhat tattered (but nonetheless understandably ...
