I walked to the Medina part of town and had breakfast in a small family run restaurant. The owner Mohamed was very friendly and continued to bring more than enough food than my stomach could fit in. He also offered to cook me a traditional Moroccan lunch at any time for the day or night.
I walked around the Medina and had a quick look at the Kasbah
During the mid afternoon I returned to see Mohamed and his traditional food, Gwynne and Martin joined me. It started with a Moroccan Salad followed by Lamb Tajine, which is a lamb stew served in an traditional earth ware bowl all served with plenty of fresh bread and a desert of fruit pastry.
On a sad note, during the day one of the girls in the group was robbed at knife point while walking alone back to the camp site. She had her video camera and photographic camera stolen. While walking around town I felt safe at all times I at no time did I fell unsafe, but I guess things can happen at any time to anybody.
