Journal Entry:
Tried to find an English bookstore. Couldn't find it, and were told it would be closed on Sunday anyway. Spent the day at the beach again. Got more than a little burned.

Went to a small Moroccan restaurant near the hotel. When I say Moroccan I mean that Moroccans eat there. The kitchen was in the corner and consisted of a dozen charcoal braziers resting on the floor with Tagine dishes cooking on top. When we got there all they had was chicken tagine. It was incredible, it was so good that we had seconds (at 15 Dh a serving that's not much of a splurge). Afterwards I had a "Maxi Sandwich" ice cream, the Moroccan equivalent of a Maxi Bon.
