Got 1st class tix. had compartment to ourselves for awhile--laid down & slept. In Meknes 2 others came in.
Nice driver took us to the Cottages. Difficult to find, but he was very nice.

Like the riad itself our room had a touch of understated luxury. Up on the roof top terrace there was a lovely pool and a scattering of red sun lounges and chairs along with a little dining area, including a small honesty bar. It was a lovely space.
We headed out on our orientation tour ...
Started the day a little slower with a lovely sleep in, followed by breakfast at the riad. We then wandered around the medina taking in the sights of Marrakech. Jamaa el Fna was a long walk (if you followed the signs) or a quick one if we had just looked at the map. Very busy - it is the centre of the medina and where everything touristy you could possibly imagine ...
