NOT FOR VEGETARIANS

In Morocco, almost everyone eats meat. That's great. Couscous is normally topped with some beef. Lamb is eaten a lot too as is chicken. Obviously, pork is not - this is a Muslim country. On the way to Abdou's birthplace we stopped to buy some meat. Here you can really see where your meat comes from... 

Beef and lamb, so fresh that the blood was still dripping onto the pavement.

Cutting off a big chunk for Abdou. They used a big hacksaw.

Our purchase being weighed. And silly me - I thought the lamb's heads were for decoration - or just showing the brand of meat. No no, you cook the head and eat the meat - delicacies being cheeks, brains .... and eyes. Eeeeuw.
