Just over 1¾ hours drive from Ain Diab, Casablanca we reached Rabat the capital of Morocco. First in the itinerary is a visit to the King’s palace. We noted that in every major city in Morocco, the king has a palace. Upon arrival, it was drizzling with strong winds which literally made us shiver due to the low temperature in November. Fortunately it lasted for a while and we were than able to stroll the outer perimeter of the palace.
After the King’s palace, we will be visiting the mausoleum of Mohammed V and Kasbah of Udayas before retiring for the day to our hotel.
50km more to Rabat. It rained on-and-off during the journey.
