Such is life.

No bad feelings. We part in peace. On my own again, willing to take the challenge I leave Marrakech on Sunday the 22nd of May, 10 month into the trip.

I like my new found liberty, to do anything any time I want and I know I should use it wisely. > journey > africa > morocco > 20050522-marrakech
