Boat building in Al Jadida

The main area of El Jadida

Our last stop in Morocco. At 9 in the morning we made our way to Air Maroc and finally managed to get tickets to Malta, then caught the bus to El Jadida. At the bus station we got talking to a couple from Australia who had travelled extensively all over the world, and we continued our chatting on the bus journey which helped the time pass quickly.

The second half of the trip the landscape changed to productive fields, being ploughed by men and horses in the time old way that fields have been ploughed for centuries.

On arrival the four of us waked along until we found Hotel provence, and settled into large bedrooms with brown covers and peach coloured walls, dubious plumbing but clean comfortable beds.

In the evening we strolled out along the wharf to a LP recommended restaurant where we dined on fresh fish and prawns, with a platter of delicious vegetables, washed down with red and white wine.

08 November and our last day in Morocco (yahoo says Brian!). Exploring our last medina, as the ramparts and medina were built by the Portuguese it is different to the others we have seen- its a world heritage site because it is the only one that crosses the cultural gap between Europe and Africa.

09 Nov- drove by taxi to Casablanca and caught the Air Malta flight to Malta- felt like we were back in a luxurious world!
