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.

We caught the 6:50am train from Fes. Had a 1st class seat which means you have a reserved seat in a compartment of 6 people. The journey took 7 hours and it was much better than car or bus. You could see the country change from green to brown in a matter on 1 km. looks like very hard work to make a living farming in Marakesh. Arrived in Marakesh around 2:30pm took taxi to ...
