Journal Entry:
It was very loud last night = not much sleep, and the alarm went off way to early. Packed, actually managed to got out of the hotel on time, but the taxi took thirty five minutes due to traffic (about five minutes last night). Not a problem, as the next train was later than I thought and I ended up getting to the airport with time to spare. Getting on plane I noticed someone two people in front of me - my friend Lindsay! (See Chefchauen, July '99 entries) Weirder yet she just happened to have the seat next to mine!

In Ouarzazate shared a room with Lindsay. I walked around and found my parents hotel - eventually. Ended up walking an extra hour - the maps in my guidebook really suck. My parents hadn't checked in yet (I was about three hours earlier than our agreed upon time) so I went out wandering (this time intentionally). Was back at their hotel at six, the agreed upon meeting time - they didn't show up until nearly seven. Had diner with their tour group, hung out with them, then returned to my slums.
