Jardin majorelle created by the painter Jacques Majorelle and was delightful

We stayed in a delightful Riad, a town house that had a roof garden with a courtyard that was normally open to the elements. As it was winter max temp 24/25 they had a plastic roof but we still shared our living area with birds.

Lynne and I shared a room with Kate. She blamed me for the snoring but I think she was being kind to Lynne. I was on my best behaviour on holiday with two ladies. I can remember looking after Lynne in Turkey, Iran and Afghanistan. The men surprisingly had no interested in Lynne they did however show an interest in Kate. I was reminded of my age I was not offered recreational drugs but I was told I was looking tired and asked if I would be interested in Viagra, the cheek of foreigners!
