I’ve been waiting the entire trip to see the Qarawiyyin Library. Established originally as a mosque by Fatima Al-Fihre in 859, it houses 4,000 rare books and manuscripts, and is the oldest working library in the world.
The hotel is a stark contrast to the riad in Rabat and the boutique hotel in Chefchaouen. My room overlooks a swimming pool. For the first time since arriving, I am wishful for my suitcase.
