    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 …

    A maze of markets

    ... outfits try and follow you. But not too much hassle. We went to the Ali Ben youssef medersa - an old school and mosque. A large, ornate courtyard, full of colourful mosaics and carved marble. In the centre of the courtyard was a small pool of water, which reflected all the patterns of the walls. It was really pretty. All around the courtyard and upstairs were small rooms which the 900 boys would have stayed in. Today, it's no longer used as a school, just for tourists to look ...

    ... class? Well this is what we had arranged the day we leave at the Amal Cooking School. This not-for-profit organisation takes women off the street and gives them valuable life and career skills. We learn to whip up a Tagine and are given the recipes. During our week in Morocco we had grown quite obsessed over Moroccan mayonnaise and are delighted to obtain a recipe for this too.

    And this concludes my first visit to the African ...

    After two nights in Zagora, we started our way back northwest and ended up again in the seeming middle of nowhere. Our accomodations, the Kasbah Air Ben Damietta, was a wonderful place, run by a French woman; so the cuisine de haute was French - steak!

    We also stopped at the Atlas Movie Studio outside of, here comes that name again, Ouarzazate. Lawrence of Arabia, Cleopatra, and Patton, among other, were filmed, at least in part, here.

To say Thank-you in Arabic is, 'Shukran' but you sort of roll the r and some how add a 'h' in there.....Jed tried to teach me. It went something like this.
