Journal Entry:
Got up early to go meet my parents and their tour group at their hotel - I'm hitching a ride with the group. I think that I'm just not a tour person - I found even the seven hours I spent with the group pretty painful. Stopped at a couple random kasbahs for photo ops. Had lunch at the spectacular Todra Gorge - but an amazing number of tour buses, at least a dozen! The bus dropped me off at Tinjdad around 4:00. An easy fifteen minute taxi to Goulmima - right to Amy's door. Hung out and talked with Amy until she had to go to work (evening class). I relaxed and read. When Amy got back we cooked a diner out of what we scrounged - turned out great. Up pretty late catching up.
