Journal Entry:
No problem catching the bus. I'd forgotten how nice the CTM busses are. It was a long trip - seven hours (LP said it's 5.5). In Chefchauen there were only two taxies and they both got grabbed before I had a chance - no problem I've been here before, I know the way. Unfortunately I'd forgotten about the hill - and it's warmer than it was when I was here before. By the time I got to the square it was four o'clock and I was absolutely drenched. In the square Lindsay, one of Amy's friends who I'd met last summer in Essaouira, recognized me and showed me where Amy's house was.

It was great seeing Amy and we spent the afternoon / evening hanging out and catching up. Went out for diner to Aladdin and I had an excellent Pastela. Back at the house we Amy, Ted, Lindsay, and I broke out my last bottle of Amarula.
