Quick Update

Thursday, January 31, 2013

Sat in a McDonald’s in Casablanca, the place is packed but the service was the best I’ve experienced in one of these joints!

Anyway not got time to do a proper update, I’ll try getting access down the road in Safi as I’m going to be working my way down the coast. Derek, I’ll still make Agadir if all goes to plan!

Just wanted to let you all know I tried to get a train from Marrakech to Rabat to collect my Visa for the next leg, but they refused to let me on with all my luggage. I ended up doing a mixture of hitching (for which I had to pay) and riding which worked out quite well. Picked up my Visa for Mauritania yesterday and have two weeks before it’s valid – enough time to get to the border.

Thanks for all the messages, keep them coming – I do read them all even if I don’t respond.
