The 'fountain hall' in the Mausoleum of Moulay Ismaïl, Meknes

Armed with a map from Mohamed we had a morning to DIY in Meknes. Skipping the hidden splendours of the Versailles of North Africa, we opted to walk from the Ville Nouvelle into the Medina, where we enjoyed a tranquil exploration of the Mausoleum of Moulay Ismaïl and a mooch around the souq and its surrounding streets. The group reunited in the main square to go for the much vaunted camel burger lunch, and then a quick visit to the Bou Inania Merdersa before loading up into our minibus for the drive to Volubilis.
