The sheep, being brought home at the end of the day. Traffic on the road can be held up for quite some time in the early mornings and late afternoons.
Not far from Volubis is the hilltop town of Moulay Idriss. It's a sacred place for Moroccans as this is where the first seeds of Islam were planted in area. Most of the sites here are to be seen by Muslims only, but we were just really hungry for lunch and didn't care so much about being unwelcome.
We got there just as a big storm cloud came tumbling over the mountain, giving the place a much moodier glow than it should.
Workers were coming in from the fields, their donkeys laden with Olives.
But ah, what is that smell? Whatever it was, we wanted it.
It ended up being lamb kebabs.
For about $20 USD, we had lunch for 4 people at a little square-side cafe. Olives, bread, kebabs with lovely spice sauce, and a bunch of mint tea. It was simple, but excellent. Exactly the kind of food that you would hope for while on the road.
