Next is Boujad. I walk into town from the bus station and... hey! Boujad has an old medina! Not only that, but it's a unique medina with its own feel and color: Yellow... So I head in to explore. I drunk or crazy guy hurling insults at me attempts to spoil my tour, but I continue on. Quite small, but cozy--and with a very ancient feel.
Afterwards I head out for something to eat. It's either beans or a rather wilted looking tagine. I opt for the beans and after regret my decision. Head out to the edge of town and then back in--a crowd of young fellows call me over and demand some music. They fill me in a bit on the proud history of Boujad--confirming that, yes, it is very old... They beg me to stick around--but I have many more miles to cover...
I head to the main plaza area where I take another video clip and head on down the road...
