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.
Got in our cottage, Sylvain showed us around. Went to the pool.
Laid down, not feeling well. A/C not working. Sylvain couldn't get it to work, so we moved to another cottage.

Highlight was a rest (and snack, of course) in Cafe des Epices with a nice rooftop view over a small open market below, Got lost again ...
... that too. We've seen that movie before, you cant woo us into slavery! I'm completely kidding. Don't worry everyone, it is really perfectly safe here as long as you're smart and aware. After a LONG (because they had wifi) lunch at Cafe Arabe (www.cafearabe.com) we made it home by 4:30 ish. We read by the pool for a long time and attempted to decide where to eat.
