Whilst in Rabat I had wanted to see as many sights as I could fit in. In the end though we only ended up visiting Le Tour Hassan and the Mausoleum of Mohammed V situated opposite. The tower was uncompleted at only 44m high, it was intended to be the tallest minaret in the world. All the smaller pillars are the remains of the mosque that collapsed during an earthquake. The mausoleum was incredibly decorated, the outside was covered in carvings and the inside was covered in mosaics, from floor to ceiling. Although we only managed to see the one tourist site, I still enjoyed our brief stay in Rabat. Being able to wander down to the local market round the corner and buy fresh fruit and veg, smell the kebabs being grilled and watch the local kittens playing with each other around the stalls, was so lovely. Having seen some of what Rabat has to offer it was time to catch a train across to Casablanca.

P.S You can see in this post what I mean about getting snap happy whilst on holiday, I apologise for the photo overload, but this is whittled down from all the ones that I did take!
