Day three in this wonderful city, and sadly, it was raining. ALOT
We woke late, and with nothing to do wandered around the city, getting soaking wet and miserable.
It seems so funny how cold it became after only a few hours! We started at the Tombs, which although sounds very cool, were pretty boring. Just a whole bunch of coloured peices of floor. The roofs of the buildings the tombs were in were very nice though!
After this, we eventually decided we should take one of the big red bus tours around the city because atleast you could sit in side if it was too wet. After a very long time attempting to find how to get the bus ( plus getting even wetter) we went to the tourist info centre who pointed us in the right direction!
We sprinted for the bus that saw int he distance and just managed to jump on it before it drove away!
We headed up to the top deck which now had a cover on it so we could see. The trip was OK, Cold and wet, but we did get to see parts of the city we hadn't before. We stopped off at the train station and grabbed some tickets for our trip to Casablanca in a few days. And finished to tour at around lunch time.
It ended in the 'New City' so we headed to a cafe and got some warm pumpkin soup and tea. The tea was the best I ever tasted and it was only when we smelt the milk ( smelt like vanilla) we realised that it was so good because the milk had sugar in it!
After all of this we looked out the window and we very happy to see it had stopped raining!!
We jump in the nearest taxi, who did not know a word of english, and managed to somehow tell him to take us to a camel trek! We drove, winding our way through the city and suburbs until, yet again, we found ourselves in the middle of nowhere.
It wasn;t long until we found a whole lot of camels, hanging around. We were the only two there so it made it easy for us to just hop on them and go! It was so scary when the camel got up. It feels like you are going to fall forward, and then you get thrown backwards and you think your going to go flying off the back! We got to walk around this amazing desert style area, full of interesting bush and lots of palm trees. we went through a very remote village that was very interesting to see. There were no hagglers here which was very refreshing! after about and hours we headed back and again nearly fell off the the camel went down. To our surprise, the taxi was still waiting for us! What a great guy! He drive us back into the city where we walked around the square again. The place transforms at night into the busiest place I have ever been!
We quickly went home to change, and then went back to the same resutrant in to new town, as we did two days ago because it was so good!
After another lazy dinner ( including the best apple tarte tatin I have ever had!) We went to a little bar that was very cool, but very westerised!
We had a few drinks here before heading home super tired yet again!
