Journal Entry:
Slept in! After getting up before sunrise the last two days it was pure heaven to not have to get up. Had a leisurely breakfast with the gang, played cards, and worked on my journal.

Went for an evening walk up the gorge. It's so beautiful and tranquil, quite unlike the frantic hustle of the last several days. Very unlike the rest of Morocco. Watched the sun light crawl up the canyon walls as the sun started to set the clouds on fire and stopped to talk to the Berbers who live here. As it started to get dark I turned back to the hotel.
