A Day 2 Introduction - to the
annual summer migration from the desert to the sea:"Ladies and Gentlemen...look straight way

The Unfinished Mosque -

impressively long wall (stopping for pictures not advised, see
the note on guards).
First Kasbah -

Dallas Texas (area), circa 2025 - Notice
the resemblence of the mature cork tree "orchards"
of the now successful company - Pat & Julia’s Texas
Cork Company to those we saw on leaving Rabat
Dinner in Meknes - in a beautifully
restored house with excellent lamb tagine, but the
only restaurant in Marocco without wine - still an
