Anyway, after the bus ride with a couple of stops that I won't elaborate upon for fear of losing you to mundane details, we arrived in Marrakesh and our tour guide walked us through some of the old medina souks, after which we stopped for a couscous and tajine lunch (it was good, but I won't digress into culinary details).

Harumph!!!
