Last Saturday before Christmas. The one thing you should avoid: shopping malls. The one thing you probably can’t avoid: shopping malls. And people. Lots of them. S-Bahns and Trams full of them. And boxes, and bags, and Christmas trees. All of it with a Glühwein in the hand. And I am one of them. (The photo is from Tuesday, imagine, all these people and bags and taking pictures?)
Things you do in Rabat: going shopping in the Medina (Arabic for “city” and refers usually to the old part of an Moroccan city). It is mostly walled with a inmense labyrinth of alleys inside. In the main arteries are all the shopping booths selling cloths, shoes, cd’s, food, spices, cel phones, leather products, cloth, meat, turtles, well, in short: everything. It gets really busy in the afternoon.
