~ Reading Test ~

           Yoko, the Japanese History student, is in Osaka now. She has just come back from Morocco where she spent two weeks. While she was there, she travelled to many different parts of the country.

           She started her trip in Rabat where she enjoyed visiting lots of historic monuments such as Shalla, Loudaya and Hassan Tower. These three are the most important memorials of Rabat. Then, she took the train to Casa where she visited Morocco-Mall and other places, but she quickly left it for Marrakech because it looked crowded, noisy and polluted for her.

           In Marrakech she stayed a longer time because she loved it a lot. She visited the Badia Castle, Koutoubia, Menara and Saadiyin Tombs, but she spent most of her time in Jamae Lafna Square where she took some awesome photos. She also toured the city by coach. She wanted to spend a night in Al Mamounia, but it was very expensive for her. She was so much crazy about the Moroccan culture that she decided to go back the next summer holiday./.
