I have long wanted to visit the Vala. It is in the outskirts of town next to the new mosque/religious college. The Vala pre-dates it by decades and is one of those restaurants mostly used for weddings and other functions. The town tends to book it for events such as the bike race when lots of people need feeding. We had never been and were very pleased when the Teacher invited us. I had expected gardens but it was actually a purpose built restaurant building with numerous rooms over 2 floors
and a further terrace from which there were views across the valley to the anti-atlas.
It has been very hot the last few days and it was pleasant to sit in the shade and have a banquet prepared for you.
Beloved was very taken by the old telephone in Reception.
