Finally we had a day of rest and there is nowhere nicer to relax than in a fantasy riad nestled into the mountains. The Riad Bab Ourika fit the bill very nicely and apart from a short lesson in making a lamb terrine we did very little except read, snooze and enjoy this lovely building and its very large gardens. bliss!
At the end of our short sojourn into the mountains we headed to Essaouira via some goats in trees – yes really – see proof below. A uniquely Moroccan experience and I like the fact they are prepared to share trees.
Next stop Essaouira on the coast.
