Saka provids me with a beautiful mountain view, a delicious (but overpriced) tagine, another enthusiastic cafe audience and some very peculiar ruins, including an aqueduct that looks distinctly Romanesque... could it be possible?  Later I try to google Saka ruins with no success...

Saka... very small, yet somehow a fitting ending to this very intense 11 day tour...

On the bus down to Guercif and then the overnight bus to Casablanca I feel a bit overwhelmed as I tried to let sink in all that I'd experience over these last few days...

..For the first time, I feel like I've really thoroughly experienced and parkbenched a region.  I can now confidently say that I've done the Taza-Oujda-Nador triangle justice.

.. I've hiked the mountains, wandered the medinas, visited the villages--brought my music to 27 of its cities and towns... I think I've just set a very exciting precedence for myself...

Maybe it's not as glamorous as a 1 month 15 country tour of eastern Europe or a lightning ride around South America--but it's very satisfying in a deeper way. 

What's next?  Maybe the Tanger-Fes-Khenifra triangle?  The Oujda-Figuig-Errachidia triangle?  A village by village tour of northern France?  A bicycle tour of The Netherlands?  Damn!  There's still a lot of world out there for me to parkbench and experience--and I'm very eager to go out there and do it...

But for right now, I need to head home, get some rest, learn some more songs, and of course--do the music video of Rchida that I promised...
