May 3, Marrakech, Morocco.
We requested breakfast at 7:30am but finally showed up at 8am. It turned out Sadik the Riad Manager had been waiting for us to serve breakfast since 7:30am! The breakfast was simple but delicious, with bread, Moroccan pancakes, eggs and watermelon.
After some struggles finding the way, our taxi driver finally got his way to the 2nd centre of Amal. Amal is a non-profit organization meaning “Hope”, which helps local Moroccan females to equip skills and eventually find jobs. We booked a cooking class for Couscous at 300 Dh per pax. Joined with us were an older couple from Canada and a young couple from Russia. We were coached by the chef and a volunteer facilitated as a translator. That was really a morning well spent. And looking back, the tagine and couscous we had this morning were the most delicious ones!
The Russian couple was kind enough to drive us to Jardin Majorelle, where we took thousands of pictures. Then we decided to head back to riad again to escape from the heat.
We took a long rest at the riad and skipped Ben Youssef Merdersa (which should be the No. 1 tourist spot on Trip Advisor btw). Then we headed to Libzar, a higher end restaurant in Marrakech to enjoy our dinner.
The Moroccan Salad was alright. It comprises of 16+ small dishes of vegetables. The Chicken Bastilla and Fish Tagine were awesome. It would be better if the ventilation at the restaurant could also improve a bit though.
