A Rest and Recovery Day in Ait-Benhaddou 

We’ve decided to stay over an extra day at the lovely hotel we’ve found, just a few kilometers north of the ancient ksar on a hilltop, Ait-Benhaddou.  Tali is working her way through the flu that she’s developed, and it seems a good idea to have a quiet day to aid in her healing.  Tomorrow, we will leave for Marrakech, by a long, circuitous route through the highest Mountains in Morocco, a trip that we will spread over three days.  

During our travels so far, we have had too many typical Moroccan breakfasts for tourists – yogurt, usually eggs, the ubiquitous “Vache Qui Rit” (Laughing Cow brand) cheese, which requires no refrigeration, and tastes like it, along with breads, sweet pastries, and mint or English tea – and Tali has just bought some granola in a super-marche in Ouazazarte, so I will have something to eat in the mornings, as I don’t eat any eggs, and very few dairy products.  And despite our luxurious hotel,  this morning’s breakfast selection is no exception, so I had Moroccan granola with orange juice…surprisingly good!

Today, we will work on updating our journal entries, downloading photos, and simply relaxing.  

Possibly we will go out for a drive or a walk closer to sunset, when the amazing Moroccan light is at its most golden.
