Continuing on to the next town, some of the boys offer to accompany me. Since I've been guilty of contributing to truancy a couple times before I remind them that their supposed to be in class. "Oh, we just got off school" they reassure me.
The hike to Agoubt isn’t to far—but would still be a miserable walk to make during the hot months. I ask why they don’t have bicycles “we used to… but they broke down”…
They ask what my job is and I tell them I’m an English teacher
We sit in the shade of a palm grove to play some more music and they pick some dates and share with me (I learn later that “stealing” cheap dates for a quick snack is permitted in these parts—but not the expensive dates). A enjoyable experience—and it will also go down in my record book as one of those rare occurrences when a fellow hiker or hikers join me for a walk from one town to another.
