    ... aperitifs of mint tea and cookies, our delicious dinner of couscous and the juiciest oranges I've ever had for dessert. We spoke to the guys and asked them questions about their life in the desert, kindly translated by Sayed. It was totally fascinating to see such a completely different way of life. The closest school was in Merzouga which was hours across the dunes and the closest hospital was even further than that. One of the guys had been to school but the other ...

    ... which, we were told, left at 6.40. What? What about the 2pm train? 'That is an arrival, sir'. Which it was. It also unfolded that there was nowhere we could leave all our bags, so we had to resign ourselves to a five hour wait at the station. I called our contact at Ibertours, and let him know what time our train would arrive at Fes, and he said he would arrange a driver to pick us up. Trains came, trains left.

After we got to the tent, he made us some tea and spoke to us. Like most Moroccans, ...

    ... midday which was just as well because everyone else's were blowing off the line. We pulled the "pop up" down, shut the slider and sat it out! This is definitely "lipsol" weather.

There were ten of us altogether including 4 Brits; I single them out because their sense of humour easily surpasses Swedes, Malaysians ...

    ... went our separate ways. In fact, most days I was approached by guys, but they just wanted to have a chat and a tea and learn about Australia. Most days I would share a tea with at least a few different strangers. Some of whom I am staying in touch with now and will hopefully see again one day, Inshallah.
