In the 12th century sultan Yacoub al-Mansour decided to build the biggest mosque in the world, with the biggest tower. He died a few years later and the works were stopped, with the tower reaching 44 of its planned 86 meters high. Lisbon's earthquake damaged the started...

La Menora: Excellent seafood
I ate there twice during a recent business trip to Rabat. My friend had the sole and said it was great. I am not a seafood fan and it looked good to me. I had the kefta and they were also very good but a bit underdone for my taste. The bread and sauces that came with the...
Le Baron former Le Prive or La Bo M: Not Impressed!!!

A few kilometers out of Rabat, and close to Kenitra, someone decided to build a tropical garden. Surprisingly luxurious in such an arid country, the gardens are a good solution for a brake in your trip and to rest from urban agitation
There were farm stands along the road outside town, selling all sorts of things. The one we stopped at is run by a nice woman who brings her child with her. She had juju nuts, eggs, honey, snails, and live chickens, turkeys and guinea hens. The birds were all staked out with...
