    ... courtyard) I had to remind him that the hotel staff all spoke fluent English. I could be arrested for that sort of behaviour. It was very awkward. His words about the current government echoed around the hotel while seven staff members listened in.

    I stopped for some lunch in one of the souks in a snack bar that had no atmosphere and no smiles, like many places here. The girl who eventually served me (I was their only customer) went back into the kitchen and after ...

    ... We didn't get much sleep that night.  The next morning we moved our stuff into the room with private bathroom and felt much better. The staff here are very rude which just adds to everything else.  We left the hotel and went for a walk around the old city. It took all day walking around the tiny streets getting lost, looking in palaces and mosques. I had the best ice cream ever in a place called Bardash. Even Fraser said it was good. Feeling tired ...

    ... we waited another hour. The bus didn't load up, didn't go anywhere. So we followed our gut and decided to leave. Feeling off, it didn't make sense to go to the desert in this weather anyways. The bus ride could have been sketchy, un-ac'd, who knows. Of course, we tried to get our money back, but no go.
