    What do you do when you wanna go sightseeing and get going at the same time?

    Rabat architecture...

    You apply the good old business deal, 2-for-1, to the day and do both. I’m up early (Moroccans seem to be one bunch of sleepyheads), head for the massive and dead-quite (pun unintentional) cemetery next to the crashing waves of the Atlantic Ocean.

    Enormous graveyard in Rabat.

    As always, it’s an eerie sight looking at thousands of symmetrical gravestones. I was always fond of cemeteries for some reason.

    A bike, a woman, a kid.

    Hmm, fresh morning bread

    So after a few turbo hours of touring Rabat on foot, it’s back to my pink room, get packed and well before noon I’m off again, less than 18 hours after my arrival in the capital. This is how I like it. Bit of this, bit of that…(Don’t get me wrong. I’m not being promiscuous here 🙂 )

    Plantation north of Rabat...

    Bands of the Day: Kent and The Killers.

    Sometimes I just need a bit of good old rock in my ears, to keep the energy high.

    On their way to work?

    The road north of Rabat is flat, and for a change I’m favoured by a sweet tail/cross/no wind that makes this a fairly snappy day. Conditions are perfect (but not quite like these guys would have it).

    This is one heavy loaded truck!

    On this day..
