Rebat is probably the least visited national capital, most people are not even aware that it is Morocco's capital city. It's impressive modern station opens onto a wide tree lined street & sleek modern trams criss-cross the city. The high walled medina is large but modest compared to Fez & there are few tourists so there are virtually no touts or conmen doing the rounds.
Medina street food was excellent but the cows skull with meat chunks hanging off it was off-putting but, unlike at home, at least you know what you're eating & that it's fresh. Beer was hard to find but a French shop keeper directed us to a street & said listen for the music & behind a huge blank door was a bar packed with men drinking with blearing music & football on TV. It looked intimidating but staff & customer were friendly & chatted, shanking hands when we left.
It was an interesting visit but I'd rather have spent more time in Tangier.
