My little notebook is filling up with notes and more questions for my trainer, Kate. One of our passengers is particularly ill with D&V and nown lies in the aisle of the bus. A headoffice no-no, but the only way to get him to be comfortable for a afternoon drive to our hotel.

It's a long day driving so the group got out and walked 15 minutes to catch up the bus which had sped on ahead. I had flashbacks to our training activity when 'passengers' went missing/sped on ahead/refused to go any further. But this went along fairly smoothly and it's been good to see another classroom handy hint put so effortlessly into action by Kate.

I dread to think what my day as TL will be like: the passengers and I get along really well so it's hard to step back and as one person pointed out, I don't quite have 'the authority'.

Hmmmmmm..... another thought to ponder on this long drive.

Then a moment to indulge in being a tourist and joining everyone in snapping photos of the Atlas mountains. We're travelling over the Middle Atlas now and later, will follow the High Atlas.

I love this scenery: dry desert, open sky and the land rising to bare snow covered mountain ridge. The space reminds me of childhood in outback Australia, albeit without the mountain or snow!

The sight of seemingly endless flat, red land against the enormous sky makes me feel at home. For a moment I can forget all my questions and thoughts ... until it comes time to count back onto the bus again!
