There are several places to dine along the river and that's exactly what we did. Tajine chicken and lamb under a tree next to a waterfall. Can it get any better?
We bought a few souvenirs in the shops here and intended to ship them home via DHL. HA HA HA - more of that shipping fiasco later. We picked out what we wanted and let Abdul do his negotiating. Side note - we kept having to go to the ATM in Morocco because up here and in the medinas no one takes credit cards. Ok, we're broke now but happy. We gave Said an extra twenty dirhams and gave him a ride back to his house.
On the way back to our hotel we stop at DHL and Fed Ex to have our items shipped home. Stupid us - we need to pack it for them first and we have no packing materials. Ok, we're screwed - we bought 3 pieces of breakable pottery. What do we do now? We assured Abdul that we can get it into our carry on.
We got back to our hotel and told Abdul that we would not need him for the rest of the night
We set out for Djemaa el-Fna. We had seen a restaurant there we wanted to try. We made it there and back!!!! We didn't get lost in the medina! We're old pros now. We met a nice couple from Australia at dinner. They had to rub it in that they get four to six weeks vacation like the Europeans. Need to talk to you about that, Jan. LOL
Going to be early as Abdul will be picking us up at 6:30 tomorrow morning.
