I am reading Tahir Shah's new book on Morocco. I think it will be very good. He is both an outsider and an insider.
I hope everything will be ok with Cheli and Isolde. We may be out of touch more on this trip. As it is, we will start slightly later than most of the group because of our flights. I noticed that a large number (relatively speaking) are from the east coast.
Pretty soon I will need to get up and move around so I don't stiffen up completely.
