We arrived just as the sun was setting. This was the first time I've ever seen the sun set over the Atlantic. It was kind of weird.
This is what Essouira looks like while the sun sets. Not a great picture, but you get the idea.
Brahim and Ahmed were savvy enough to score us a very nice place to stay. We stopped outside the bus station, and Ahmed spoke to a woman sitting on the sidewalk. She led us to an apartment for rent.
The apartment had a large sitting room with couches and tiled walls...
A bedroom with a double bed.
another sitting room...
and a kitchen. Quite the deal for 150 dirham (about twenty bucks). Much nicer than $20 hotel rooms in the U.S. (Actually, I don't really know that for a fact. I've never been brave enough to stay anywhere that cheap.)
Essaouira is a beautiful coastal city.
The daylight provided for many beautiful views.
I loved it.
