Journal Entry:
Spent the day wandering around. Walked, had coffee, walked had tea, repeat. I've never wandered around Casa before - I always considered it a bit of a pit. Actually it's very pleasant - lot's of parks, wide boulevards well planted with trees, and if the people aren't particularly friendly at least they don't hassle you. In the evening found an internet cafe and spent some time with email. Got hold of my mom (my parents are in Taroudant right now) and made arrangements to meet them in Ouarzazate tomorrow. Ended up staying up late writing a "charmap" application for my H/PC (I got sick of trying to figure out how to do accented characters on my handheld - allows the easy entry of things like: Å, Ç, ð, é, ¶, and ¿).
