Day 12 of my first trip to Morocco – Eid al-Adha in Rabat

Today is the Islamic Eid al-Adha, a big festival of the year. Every family has to slaughter sheep and worship early in the morning, and eat and drink to celebrate. We were lucky to have a young driver drove us from Marrakech to Rabat.

Rabat is the capital of Morocco and one of the four imperial cities of Morocco along with Fez, Marrakech and Meknes. The road from Marrakech to Rabat was well maintained and we could reach a speed of 100-120 kilometers per hour. Everyone was celebrating the festival in the morning, so there were very few vehicles on the road.

The capital is indeed the capital. The roadside greening and sanitation were well done, much more beautiful than the previous few cities.  Because it is a coastal city, the temperature also dropped to the normal temperature in summer (20-30 degrees).  After being here for 10 days, we were tired of Moroccan food. So when we found seafood from the seaside restaurant, we were very excited. However, among several dishes, only the seafood soup tasted good 😅
