me and the guys at the ocean

Rabat is where I started and ended my moroccan journey, and is a great place to enter morocco.  The airport has direct flights from Paris. 

The thing that makes Rabat great is that the people there are used to foriegners, but they do not get too many tourists (don't know why).  It has many upscale and cheap resturants, theatrics are abundents, a lot of ancient ruins, beautiful view of the atlantic ocean, and a great souke that is easy to navigate but has some seedy areas:

The Souke/ Medina:  During the day its pretty empty but it is vibrant at night.  It really doesn't have the toutes like the souke in Fez, and has a great selection of junk.  I bought a sword nicknamed the holy dagger of the jihad.  I also allmost got into a fight because I bumped into this dude and didn;t apologize, so a warning to anyone from NYC... no shoving or you might piss someone off. 

 

Food:  Kabobs and Swawarma are abound.  The area also has this great resturant with belly dancers. 

Ruins:  lots of good stuff, you can see a slave fort and some tombs of some famous dudes.

So hit up Rabat, and take a look at my photos.
