As we did not reach port in Agadir before noon, there were lectures this morning in our lecture halls. Interested in Moorish architecture? The original polar vessel "Fram"? Cartography? The Golf Stream?
Well, today all passengers had a chance to learn more about it.

The city of Agadir was quiet and nearly all shops closed today, due to the celebration of AID AL-ADHA. But we were offered an adjusted city-tour, those of us who chose not to go to the beach or visit the city centre on our own.

The city-tour included a folklore show, with horses, snakes, acrobats, musicians, dancers, singers... and of course: The mint tea. Typical Morroco!

The tour also took us to an Argan Oil Co-operative, where mainly women work to extract the precious oil.
