Musings on Morocco
|Morocco1970 - djellabas all round|
The toughest part for me was the long journey down from London to southern Spain, where I was introduced to Bacardi and Coke, much heavier on the former than the latter. That probably contributed to the good night’s sleep that followed and certainly to the cracking headache with which I awoke the following morning. Squinting into the bright sunshine, I donned my orange sunhat and prepared to cross the Mediterranean.

|Morocco1970 - Peter Clarke, our driver.|
Then it was time to embark on the ‘safari’ part of our holiday. The group was divided between two ‘desert trucks’ which were to travel in convoy. One was driven by Paul, whose surname I forget, and the other by the inimitable Peter Clarke. The roads were bumpy, to say the least, but the canvas awnings shielded us from the fierce sunlight and occasional sandstorm. There was considerable competition to ride in the cab with Peter, which offered a much better view and other fringe benefits.
