The Poor Man’s Mecca

Moulay Idriss is a site of pilgrimage for Moroccans who can not afford the Hajj.  Although it is not exactly a 1:1 ratio.  Five pilgrimages to Moulay Idriss is equivalent to one trip to Mecca.  I was only there for 30 minutes, not enough time for me to get lost?  You would be mistaken, I have conquered more confusing places in Morocco, but walking a city on a hill takes a toll on you especially in-between grande taxi rides.
