We then spent the next half an hour or so looking for a toilet - the lack of public toilets in both Spain and Morocco is pitiful, but (in spite of the fact I don't agree with having Macdonalds, KFC, Starbucks in these places, they are great for toilets :D), but none of these chains have made it to El Jadida, yet.
The smell of this city is dreadful, it is a fishing port so think hot, smelly, rotting fish, fruit, etc. We had four hours to kill before the shuttle came back to get us, we wandered around, and found a cafe selling fresh fruit juice, so decided to sit for a while, we ordered orange juice. Whilst we were sitting there with our juice, I watched them make another juice for someone else - the poured a big glass of tap water in with the juice!!! OMG I had already had a couple of mouthfuls of mine, thinking that their oranges didn't taste as good as the southern hemisphere ones, so I didn't have anymore. Thankfully the shuttle was on time and we headed back to the resort and laxed on the beach and by the pool :)
Hmmmm don't think their water is too good, I haven't ventured too far in the last 24 hours but feeling a bit better today. Just about to head to the airport in Casablanca and start the long haul home.
The trip has been fabulous, we have learnt a lot and have thoroughly enjoyed the contrast between the two countries.
