Hi!

Since the tour has finished we've been relaxing as much as possible and gradually moving down the Atlantic coast. Our first hotel in Marrakech was the noisiest place I have ever tried to sleep! It was awful! We stayed near the main square Djeema-el-Fna (The Parade of the Dead!) Which sold really cheap food outside, infact the dining stalls were the only place to watch the snake charmers etc without getting hassled!

After Marrakech, we caught a bus to Essaouira on the coast. Its really pretty & there are several shops so cheap that we felt like we'd been quite ripped off earlier.

We continued down the coast, through Agadir and we've finally ended up in Mirleft which is in the middle of nowhere and also totally quiet because of Ramadan. Getting here was a really bad day! Several men tried to pretend they were drivers for the bus we wanted so that we'd follow them - Aaargh! Luckily the real driver turned up & we recognised him so we were saved at the last minute!

Between Essaouira & Agadir, there's a special breed of goats that climb right to the top of olive trees for food & then stand up there looking really stupid!

I've been trying really hard to put some more photos on here but unfortunately so far all the computers are crap (shock!) I'll keep giving it a go though, whenever I get the chance! Sorry.

We're going to India in about 4 days now though so I'm going to have LOADS of catching up to do!
