Rabat, Rabat-Sale-Zemmour-Zaer, Morocco for 12 Hours

When traveling to Morocco, generally the first city I hear people talk about is Marrakech. I loved Marrakech, but I think a city that is highly underrated, especially for being the capital of the country, is Rabat. I had a very short window of opportunity in Rabat. From the initial reaction, Rabat reminds me of any other city, and I got the general idea of why no one was really writing home about it. After an hour or so and a good Google search I wound up in Kasbah des Oudaias. This beautiful all blue and white neighborhood that weaved in and out like a maze, led me to a stunning beach with a stunning view. The colors of the sky were unlike anything I had ever seen and sitting there through sunset left me feeling more at peace than I had in months. While traveling through Morocco I had yet to see beaches or scenic views like this, and it was one of the most surreal views I have ever had the opportunity to witness. The people in Rabat are such gracious hosts and this city left such an imprint with me for the short time I was able to experience it. For the very short amount I had there, the impression it left is incomparable to anywhere else. It is hard to fully put into words how beautiful this city truly is, one of the most picturesque places I have had the pleasure to experience.
