Journal Entry:
Wandered around the park near my hotel. Went to the internet cafe, but about fifteen minutes in the connection went down. Met an American importer, Ray, at the cafe. He ended up staying in the same hotel I am. We had diner, then a couple beers at a local bar. When the bar close we decided it was still to early and went for a few more beers at the Sheraton. The beers were excellent - draft - something imported from Germany, but they weren't as excellent as the 75 dirhams price tag that we found out about at the end of the night - nearly $8 each! Back at the hotel I decided to finish up the sewing I'd started earlier - my poor pack cover suffered a few more major rips on the Goulmima - Ouarzazat bus...
