40Trip End Dec 12, 2005
In Marrakech, we said goodbye to Yuri, Kristy, Celena, Nicole and Jane. Their flights did not depart Casablanca for a couple of days, so they decided to spend the remainder of their time in Morocco there, rather than in Casablanca where there's less to do - and the shopping isn't as good! Perhaps we will meet again someday, Inshallah (God willing).
It was only a short walk to the train station where we hopped on the train bound for Casablanca. We arrived late in the afternoon; Sandra arranged "grand" taxis to take us back to the hotel.
The five of us and Sandra ate a last meal together at the hotel. After repacking their bags (and taking some of our excess baggage - or rather, purchases - home for us!), Jon, Shannon and Arlene departed for the airport just after 10 pm to catch their "redeye" flight to Frankfurt on onward to Canada. We had been talking about this tour with them for months. It's hard to believe it's over. The time has passed so quickly!
