Journal Entry:
Tried to catch the noon bus but it was sold out (even though we were there two hours early). Caught the one o'clock bus. Long, boring, not too uncomfortable (reasonable seats, plus a/c) trip, got to Marrakesh a little before six. Small bit of bad news at the bus station, Amy needs to get to Goulmina (sp? Her site for the Peace Corps) tomorrow, and the only bus going that way leaves at five AM. Checked in to the same hotel, then spent the evening wandering around the souqs then eating and just absorbing the atmosphere in Jamaa-Fna.
