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.
... was beautiful, but even better was the amazing floral scent coming from the flowering trees. Hunter had a Berber tagine, and I had a chicken tangia. We also had Moroccan pastries and mint tea for dessert. It was all quite delicious with beautiful surroundings.
Tonight is the last night of Ramadan here in Morocco. It is one reason why we are going on our day trip tomorrow (everything will be closed for Eid).
For all my Muslim friends: Eid Mubarak!
... using the landmarks our host had pointed out.
We changed clothes and went into the courtyard and put our feet into the plunge pool. Yow was it cold! After awhile we decided to go up to the top patio where we laid on lounge chairs and looked up at the sky watching the stars appear as it got darker and darker. A nice breeze kept the air moving, and it was a perfect temperature. It was quiet, but not too quiet. Definitely relaxing.
What a lovely place...
... very large house and a very cute dog called Niki, a black terrier. Not as gorgeousness as Yoko though! This morning we had breakfast on the terrace before setting out into the souk for a spot of shopping and haggling, love it! In the square were the usual vendors, but I noticed today there were men with monkeys as well, I really don't like seeing animals treated like this ...
