    This place is wonderful. The manager, Siham and the owner, Jacqueline, are delightful and attentive, and the riad is beautiful. My wife was on crutches and had to stay behind one day, and they prepared her a lovely lunch at no extra charge. Food tip: there are very few options nearby. Dar Zellij nearby is glitzy and wildly overpriced. The riad will prepare you a lovely meal that is better and somewhat less expensive or, if you feel adventurous, venture up the side street behind the riad where you will find lots of street food. We ate like kings for about $3 per person, and had a great walk through a bustling, untouristy part of the city.

    We flew non-stop from JFK to Casablanca, then took a commuter train to Casa Voyageurs train station, only to learn that the 10:50 train to Marrakech was already sold out. Kim and I braved an immense but good-natured throng of locals and, after some confusion involving a series of baffling problems with the ticket vending machines, were able to buy …

    The sun was cracking the stucco walls as we prepared for another busy day doing not very much in Marrakech. Lucia had bought a Fez yesterday, thereby ending a lifelong search for the world's most authentic head wear; however, she has decided not to wear it in Morocco for some unknown reason ( at least to me. ) so it is back to baseball caps and the classic, floppy bush-hat.

    On a different subject, it has been brought to my ...

YES - it's been interesting and unlike any other place I've visited. Is it my #1 destination? No. But then of course none of us could actually come up with just 1 favorite place to ...

    ... far below) and the guardrail had not been replaced. Moroccans drive like Europeans which means they have some crazy sixth sense about passing on every curve. So all in all it was a fist clenching, catch your breath and help the driver brake drive. At dinner tonight our guide told us there was an accident on the road just yesterday killing 24 people. But having survived - it was a great experience! We then arrived in Marrakech - the most modern city we've seen (there's a ...

    ... predominantly French, were staying at nice hotels near ours. It makes sense, since French is a language spoken by most locals, along with Arabic. Morocco is also becoming a film-making destination, and we learned that Dris is apparently the guide to the stars, having shown around a smattering of people with some degree of fame in the last six months, including Bill Murray, Mick Jagger, Hugh Jackman, and NASCAR driver Kurt Busch. Dris was a good match for the Goodners ...
