my last meal with henna tatoo on my arm
We were really surprised by the hospitality Kamal has provided. Hostel with 5 star service! If you have problem with the room Kamal will straight away deal with it professionally like if the is no hot water of its too hot, a very detail survival tips in term of directions etc. Plus where else could we get abundant mint tea( whenever we want) and free sheesha ( but they were group of American young travelers hogging it). In my opinion the hostel that we stayed was the best hostel that we ever stayed(at least for myself). Riad Massine II hostel was simply hard to compare with. I mean with its cheaper rate per night in copmarison with its rivalry , I'm sure other travellers would think the same .
5 days in Morroco was not enough. We went to Atlas mountain en-route to Sahara
desert to be greeted by Berber tribe in their homely tent. Overnight in the tent with group of like-minded travellers was a good fun. I really enjoyed the food. Tagine and Kous-kous were tasty. I ate them most of the time because its delicious and cheap. It was better than Egyptian food the last time I was in Egypt. The bazaar may be stinky , you would be pretty annoyed by the touts selling cheap souvenir,you probably pissed off by the sound of cars or bike honking to get their ways, you'd be foolishly ripped-off if don't know how to haggle but all of that makes it uniquely interesting from indie travellers point of view.
