... t speak English so we communicated using a mixture of French, sign language and a lot of interpretation. Also similar to most Moroccans, Mohammad cheered up a lot after he broke fast. He promptly assigned Dorothy the affectionate name of "fatima" and started referring to her as such. Later Dorothy asked him to give me a Moroccan name too.

It did make for very slow transport all the time so I spent more than a week in buses; trains are almost non-existent.
