Sunday, July 26, Rabat, Morocco

The narrow alleyway’s of the Kasbah in Rabat.

I played the tourist in Rabat today visiting the beach, the kasbah, the medina, and the Roman ruins.

There are several nice beaches here but the best places to swim are in the river that divides Rabat from it's sister city, Sales.

In the second century BC this place was the capital of a Roman province.

The most common form of dress hereabouts (excepting the traditional islamic furnishings) are baseball caps with the logo of the New York Yankees. I must have seen 50 guys sporting this headgear; and I saw many such in Marrakech, too. Oddly the most common printed tee shirt is from Franklin and Marshall College. Since F&M is Gettysburg’s number one rival I find this particularly strange.

Tomorrow i head for Fez.
