Journal Entry:
A long travel day. Spent five hours on a bus from Goulmima to Ouarzazat. In Ouarzazat immediately caught a petit taxi to the airport to buy my ticket only to find that the ticket office wouldn't open for another two hours. Ended up in the airport for four hours. Spent another hour on the flight to Casablanca. In Casa the next train into town wasn't leaving for another two hours so I split a taxi with two Canadians (I think honeymooners). I got dropped off at the Sheraton so I walked to the Colbert (the dive hotel I usually stay in) but it was full - again. Ended up at the much nicer Hotel de Noailles - the same place as last time.
