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.

... souks). After a while we occurred in the main square - Jemaa el Fna from where we were heading to two museums located on the other side of the main Souk - Madersa Ben Youssef and Musee de Marrakech.
Meanwhile the temperature increased by 20 degrees since the morning so we decided go back to the hostel and chill for a while in its common facility with the other people we had met so far.
At about 6 pm we went out again because I just couldn't leave Marrakech ...
