    a sweet tooth

    by call_me_rhia Written Jan 18, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are two things that are defnitely not missing in laayoune... the first is pharmacies (there are dozens of them) the second - and most important - is patisseries... hudreds. Definitely people living there have a sweet tooth.

    There's plenty of cakes and sweets to be bought, and all look delicious. Hard to buy only a few pieces of them, we discovered. The nice lady at the shop did only know the prices by the kilo.

    camels - and their feet

    You may forget that you are in the middle of the desert, while in Laayoune town, but if you take a short stroll outside town, you will be remembered soon... occasionally you may see men walking their camels by the side of the road.

    I really don't know where this man was walking his camel - and I'm not even sure I want to know. Just remember that camel meat - feet in particular - is a real delicacy. It was cooked for us on New Years Eve by a very friendly local family we had the chance of meeting. Not exactly yummy, though...
