A charming boutique villa that oozed ambience. I felt like Rudyard Kipling in Africa. Our room was furnished in antiquated (dare I say, 'safari' style) furniture. The wardrobe/chest of drawers was a beautifully crafted leather and wooden chest on wheels, the writing desk a portable wooden chest with leather inlaid writing surface and the wooden framed chairs foldable with stretched leather seats. A peaceful central patio/courtyard area fills the villa with light from the glass roofed top that opens during the day allowing the little local sparrows in. View from the top of the villa is great and it is 500m from the Bus station.

... blue, and they hardly seem sturdy enough to head 80km out into the ocean. Earlier in the evening we walked around the medina wall to discover the great views of the ocean and look back over the medina and the UNESCO World Heritage listed Skala of the Kasbah and Northern Bastion.
... stroke after pedal stroke, is what I see around me. In that context, Morocco is a spectacular ride.
I also find that cycling is a wonderful way to take in the details that I miss when driving. It is easy to slow down and concentrate on my surroundings in addition to the upcoming cars, potholes and, on this trip, donkeys, goats, dromedaries and locals by the side of the road.
After a shuttle ride uphill (yippee!) ...
... chance for me to message my lover Jean Raymond, at last, that all was well. He on his part had been in a panic at my not having been online for days, querying was I dead, and sending me images of tearful faces and love hearts.
It was only upon reaching our alleyway, heading home later, that we spied a tourist girl sitting with her laptop on a doorstep. She said local lads came here sometimes to connect with the wifi. Good, a local free wifi spot.
