We hopped into the car (oh sorry, Mustafa) again and headed out for the next stop. We were triple worried about driving into the city of Marrakech. Traffic here is .... Well there aren't really any rules. And round-abouts have no logic like they were meant to. B Cowles did awesome tho. We didn't get in one fight over the hectic traffic, and totally …
Got 1st class tix. had compartment to ourselves for awhile--laid down & slept. In Meknes 2 others came in.

Got in our cottage, Sylvain showed us around. Went to the pool.
Laid down, not feeling well. A/C not working. Sylvain couldn't get it to work, so we moved to another cottage.
Dinner: chicken & couscous--delish.

Once the black tea had steeped, I slowly poured it over the ice. Voila! Iced tea. So happy.

Loved it. Down a quiet alley just inside the medina walls, it's a cool experience. Great for budget travelers that want a break from it all and someplace a little more private and clean. Very friendly staff. Mohammad, the owner was very helpful and spoke English.
