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.

Once we deplaned (first step on African soil--woohoo!), we had a really long line to go through ...
... get a glimpse of what Moroccan country culture was like. Outside of a larger influx of auto traffic instead of donkeys (which means you have to get there fairly early to get a parking space nearby.) it hasn’t changed much since we first came here over 30 years ago.
