Although I am a big fan of ancient ruins like those at Volubilis, I found my visit to be somewhat disappointing, despite the beautiful weather and quality of the site. I made the mistake of accompanying the group with the guide Dragoman got for the visit, a man who spoke English quite well but seemed to be in a hurry and in a grumpy mood, perhaps because he couldn't have anything to drink on the warm day because it was Ramadan. Meanwhile, the twelve of us were all wandering around and ruining each others perfect Roman ruins photo shots. I find the best way to visit a site like Volubilis is alone and armed with a good written guide with photos since I suspect I'm much more of a visual than audial learner; no matter how hard I concentrate on a guide's explanations the information goes in one ear and directly out the other. Thus, I can't provide much detail on the subjects of my photos at Volubilis.
