Train travel in Morocco is really easy. Too bad the air conditioning in the first class compartments wasn’t working today.
So we made it to Rabat a bit sweaty.
Rabat is different than Fes or Meknes. It is quite a bit less touristy. Because it is the Moroccan capital city, there were quite a few protests going on while we were here. We have a general rule – if we see protesters or (like today) police in riot helmets with batons drawn running down the street towards a group of protesters, we turn and go another direction.
I opted to leave rather than take photos.
I did, however, take photos earlier in the day at the Kasbah:
And at the cemetery:
And when hubby purchased a new (that would be new for us) adapter for the laptop in the old souks:
