Morocco's capital Rabat, a once thriving Roman port, sits upon ochre rocks and looks out over the Atlantic. Whitewashed walls and blue doors give the narrow twisting streets a Mediterranean feel. The Medina, unlike that of other Moroccan cites has wide streets, where fresh fish and handicrafts are sold while gulls fly overhead. Rabat is a lively city and makes for an ideal introduction to the Imperial Cities of Morocco.
Never underestimate the power of a good pair of socks.
