A really good breakfast at the hotel. Was interesting to watch the lady cook the pancakes...which is really just like indian roti bread.
As this was our last morning together we had to do the obligitory group photo... and don't we all look lovely! Am glad that I travelled morocco with this great group of people, and on this Kumuka tour as it would have been so different trying to do it on your own. It was a bit sad to say goodbye to Rebecca, Jade, Miranda, Kate, Debra and Bronwyn as they left one by one in taxis for their various flights out.
A much depleted and tired (from the late night partying) group of 6 we were lucky that Mustafa took us on a short walk along windy alleys to a good view of Tangier port.
The next stop was Cape Spartal to the south of Tangier. A very historic place...and it was such a beautiful day that we loved the views and just had to do a little more haggling. there are ALWAYS sellers and wares no matter where you are! Nearby we entered the Cave of Hercules.. a famous coastal cave in Mrocco as when looking out to the ocean it is in the shape of the continent of Africa... see photo! Saw local tourist children going on donkey and camel rides here. Lovely coastal scenery. Next stop was at the lovely coastal town of Asilah.
Back on the road Mustafa came up with the idea of doing as the locals do for lunch when travelling and stop at a roadside BBQ. Sounded good..bit dubious about the freshness of the meat a but it turned out to be a great "local" experience. and we ate 2 kg of meat!!!! You got onion and tomato and heaps of crusty bread to tear off in chunks and have with the meat. ( and of course...MINT TEA) cost of 240 MAD ( $30) for the 8 of us... pretty cheap. Now I know that Morocco can be a cheap place to travel.
Arrived in Rabat hotel after driving around trying to find the damn place!!! ( Achraf is SUCH a good driver!)Traffic pretty horrendous in Rabat.
