After settling in we went out to get some falafel that were recommended by our hotel concierge. And they were really tasty with just the right spiciness. With new energy we decided to make a nightly walk down to the harbour district. The main plaza was still very lively and we enjoyed the views over the city with the glow of lanterns.

The music was really good so we had a blast there until late at night :)

At one point there was a lot cation that was used in the Game of Thrones series :) We really enjoyed the atmosphere of the city and spent more time in the alleys, markets and a restaurant than we had initially planned. But then we needed to get in the bus again for the journey to Casablanca...Read more
