So today after class we went over to Salé, which is directly across the river from Rabat, making the two almost like one city–or so it says geographically. Realistically, Salé is like a poor man’s version of Rabat. Also it smelled like garbage. I won’t be going back. However, I did get an amazing t-shirt. But wait! Let’s tell the story in pictures!
Now, most of Salé’s medina was like the dollar-general version of… any other medina I have been to on this trip, which was a real disappointment because I was prepared to load up on gifts for family and friends back home. But I didn’t because… I wasn’t in the market for used remote controls or knockoff sunglasses.
Since the bus from school–boat across the river–walking several miles ordeal to get to the Salé medina took us almost two hours, we opted on getting a taxi for the way back. But there were six of us. Problem?
After the taxi we took another bus to school, then I took yet another bus home. It has been a bus-y day! (See what I did there? Its a pun.)
Also, today is July 7th! I have officially been in Morocco for one month. Seems like wayyy longer than a month though!

LOL! I totally missed the last little part you wrote when I read this earlier-you make me smile :)
Looks like a fun time. Did you pay the woman to borrow her chicks for the photo op? The photo was worth at least 1 DH.
Sure did; I gave her a handful of change, probably about two or three DH.
