While wandering the Garden of Oudaïas,
a woman approached me,
grabbed my hand
and started painting it.
I didn’t want it painted
and I didn’t want to pay for it to be painted.
The hubby and I basically had to run out of the garden.
It was a little distressing.
So if you don’t want your hand painted,
be very, very firm.

The Garden of Oudaïas is an example of a closed or walled garden
which is supposedly very common in Morocco.
There are orange trees
(after the adventure in Seville
with the sourest orange in the world,
we no longer steal oranges to eat)
and many flowers.

I don’t know how easy it is
to explore the interior of The Mausoleum of Mohammed V
The doors were closed when we arrived.
Then guards opened them.
A tour group came.
We walked in with the tour group.
The tour guide talked for a while (not in English).
The tour group left.
We left with the tour group.
The doors were locked and the guards vanished.
So I THINK it might be by tour group only.
But as we were wandering the site,
another tour group came
(the same thing happened)
so tour must arrive often.

Every inch of the interior
was covered with carvings and other detail
including the domed roof.
Well worth the sneak visit.
