There area couple towns between the Casablanca Megapolis and the Meknes-Fes region that a decide to check out before heading to the hill country. I start with a town called Tiflet.
Tiflet is a relatively poor town--most of the roads are still dirt, and if all Moroccan cities are color coded, Tiflet will have to be "gray" I'm afraid--simply because most people haven't gotten around to painting their cinder block homes... Of course, in other parts of the world, they would be considered "middle class" simply because they HAVE cinder block homes!
Find a nice shady place to parkbench at the edge of town across from this odd looking wall? monument? dry fountain? Whatever it is, it looks quite out of place is a town like Tiflet--still I took a clip with it because it's unique...
Folks seem a bit rough in the neighborhoods I wander through--no incidents though... other than being hit by a soccer ball...
