Journal Entry:
Caught a train to Casa (Casablanca). On the train I met a Peace Corps volunteer, Amelia. It's a small world since I was planning on meeting my friend Amy, who is also a volunteer, in Rabat on Thursday night. After talking with Amelia and looking through the guidebook I decided to get off the train in Rabat and do Casa as a day trip from there (saving me from having to pack and change hotels an extra time).

Followed Amelia to a reasonable hotel in Rabat. They only had one room, so we agreed to be roommates. Went by the Peace Corps office and called Amy then we all met for a few beers.
