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.
Dinner: chicken & couscous--delish.
... sitting. He double checked again, making sure he understood what I wanted: tea in the teapot, ice in the glasses. Oui. I really think he had no idea what we were doing.
Once the black tea had steeped, I slowly poured it over the ice. Voila! Iced tea. So happy. Of course, we only had enough ice for one glass, but by the time we drank that, the rest of the tea in the pot had cooled down considerably (and so had we), so it all worked out very well. The salads were amazing too.
... has air conditioning, so he got the prices for me. Marrakech to Meknes is a nearly 7-hour train ride, so I had to go with 1st Class; I just couldn't see sweltering for seven hours.

... watercolour on my drawing of Das Adous. Some children joined me on their way to school and seemed to value the blank sheets of thick paper I was able to give each of them. One joined me for painting, sketching the landscape and competently filling it with blue and yellow. His name, beautifully scribed in Arabic, filled the gap between the land and the sky at the top of the page.
I hardly recognised our host, Llassan, his Goretex mountaineering ...
... and tortoises as well, although the reptiles all looked terrible. Walking through the souks was in some ways worse than Fes. People would try to coax you into their stand at all costs. One guy came out saying hi and extending his hand. I couldn't really not shake, but when I took his hand he held on while telling me to come in a look around just to get some "publicity" for his shop. I had to pry my hand loose to walk away. It was hard to interpret the look ...
