    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 …

    ... It was a beautiful sight in the moonlight! We climbed aboard, lurched upright and swayed off into the sands. Silence (apart from my camel, Jimmy, who munched on something all the way out) constellations, and the peaks and valleys of the dunes passing beneath us like a sea-swell. When we started seeing shooting stars, things were getting ridiculous! At the foot of a high dune, we de-camelled and climbed by foot. In the distance we heard the squawks and giggling of a Japanese ...

    We begun the day with a visit to the Saadian tombs, sealed up for centuries, these tombs were only rediscovered in 1917, blazoned with magnificently decorated stucco tiles, Arabic script and elaborate wood carvings, several hundred graves were found within the walled tomb area when aerial photos identified something existed in the over grown gardens. We also visited Bahia Palace an equally stunning building, built in the ...

    Antiques made yesterday

    ... Faux luxury.
    The crass commercialism of Marrakech continued out here in the desert lands, with tables set up every which where to sell the same-same products found everywhere. Ancient antiques mass produced yesterday. One view we stopped at, doing our own photo shoot, happily admiring the scenery had two puffing ...

    ... weird, but this is a common thing in Morocco. It is also something that all the tourists we met were taking advantage of. Sam and I were in getting a bath and massage together, and the entire experience was extremely relaxing. I think the bath part was a little ...
