We decided we had had enough of the hustle and bustle of the souqs in the old city, and decided it was time to move on. We ventured out to the new city to get a bit of a contrast before heading out of town.
The ville nouvelle was quite different indeed --posh hotels, palm tree-lined boulevards, and Mercedes after Mercedes driving through the McDonald's drive thru. The people dressed more affluently too.
Then it was off to Meknés to see another city.
We arrived early in the evening and checked ourselves into a posh-er hotel than we had been staying in all through our time in Morocco. Ah.... the endless supply of hot water in a big hotel... heavenly.
