The next series of town are packed so closely together I'm just going to count them as one town. I stop to ask a well dressed fellow coming out of his house the name of the town, and, even though he’s in a hurry, he insists on showing my hospitality, telling his wife to bring me tea and breakfast pastries.
"I’m the village sheikh" he tells me with a broad smile “you are welcome in our village”. A nice way to start out the day.
And after wandering around this town for a bit—which has more long, straight alleys, rather than twisted mazelike alleys of smaller villages, I exit to the main highway again. Passing by the high school, a crowd of schoolkids ask that I play from music for them. Kids are usually quite nice and civilized in these parts so I don’t things’ll get out of control. Soon I’ve got a nice little concert going with a crowd of 30-40 boys and a couple girls too—and yes their very well behaved… this means I can take a video clip, and pass the guitar around as well. A very enjoyable encounter with the schoolkids of Oulad Melouk.
