party train to marrakech
on wednesday morning we took the train to marrakech...you can't buy tickets before you get to fez, so when we got ours, there were no 1st class tickets left...so we were in 2nd class...we got on the train and found some seats...it was inside a compartment with 6 seats...we had four, because we bought cedar a seat...
so, then, all the other people got on board...it was packed...a couple sat with us...then, all their friends started looking in...they would look at cedar sort of like, 'why does he have a seat?' there were a ton of people standing in the aisles of the train...i don't know if they oversell the train or what...so, these peoples friends kept trying to get inside our compartment...one lady finally sat on the armrest between kerry and another lady...she sat there for a few hours....finally about 4 hours into the rides (it was and 8 hour train ride), they got off the train...woosh!!! then, a nice older couple sat down...they closed the door, so no one else could come in...they were sweet...gave cedar a tangerine....told us what to see in marrakech...so, after many stops....a few times of stopping just waiting for another train to pass...we made it to marrakech....wer'e at the four seasons hotel and it's fabulous...for some reason i got another upgrade...i'm in this amazing house...it's not a hotel room...it's got a living room, bedroom, kitchenette, huge bathroom...the tub is so deep! it goes up to my thigh! it's gorgeous...kerry and austin are in a really nice room down the road...so, we're in the lap of luxury!
