The next segment of my hike is a short one. Actually I spend most of this day exploring two Casablanca suburbs that I feel are too far to hike to—for now, Tit Mellil and Ben Slimane. At the end of the day, I catch a bus to Bouznika to explore the town itself. It's a charming little town and although it’s getting late and I think I might miss the last train to Casa, I’m going to take my time exploring it anyways. I find a long, lantern lit pedestrian plaza with an abandoned church over to the side, a relic of colonial times. A couple of children and a young artist come by to listen. After a couple of times of people trying to record my song on their cell phones, I've finally decided to always carry around a couple of home-recorded CDs with me--not the best quality, but a hell lot better than cell phone recording...
Still a bit hungry, but not sure what for... Tagine? Beans? Rotiserie chicken? no... Then I get to "the strip" a long row of restaurants where people traveling from Casablance to Rabat stop to eat--and I knew what I want...
"I'll have a portion of sheep head please..."
"Sorry, but we only sell the whole head--you'll have to buy a whole head..."
"How am I supposed to eat a whole head?"
Oh well... I have to settle for a sheep intestine sandwich and a bowl of harira instead... not too bad.
And with that I look for a collective cab to Mohammedia… and another one to Casablanca…
