We got through the small customs line in fine fashion though a guy next to us seemed rather nervous and was questioned a while before ...
... to entertain sickly clients - but we had to admit that this was an interesting explanation - even if it may have been a Khlafa Creation.
A shop with numerous spinning wheels, looms and brightly coloured cloth in gorgeous colours caught our attention. To our surprise the thread Khlafa told us was made from the Aloe Vera (Agave family) plant. The thread was lustrous and the brilliant colours were almost iridescent.

... in the beautiful courtyard drinking a beer with Jeanine and Phil, a lovely couple from Oakland (and he from LA). They were on a self drive through Morocco and had already had a myriad of adventures.
Anyway, two beer later, we had one of the hotel staff escort us to the Fez Cafe. (The alleys are so confusing it would be very difficult to navigate on your own. The Medina was still packed with people, but we noticed that some of the shops had already begun to ...
