... the flies and the wasps, made it all very exciting. Finally we exited and as we are leaving early tomorrow for Marrakesh, a 5 hour train ride away, we visited a supermarket for something to eat on the journey.

I was really glad we had such a small group so we could keep a watch on each other. Whilst in the Medina we went to the ...
... the experience came from the setting. We were on a small and grassy hill surrounded by wheat farms that crept up onto the slopes of large hills, themselves abutting the Middle Atlas mountain. Olive trees were rife, especially near the Moroccan village of Moulay Idriss perched on a single hill a few kilometres away. The houses were all whitewashed and stood out against the dull green of the olives plantations. A fresh breeze brought crisp air to us as we meandered ...
