What were you doing on Christmas day? We went surfing. My christmas lunch was a toasted kebab.

Then we realised that we had one day left to plan the rest of the holiday. So we decided to delay that and stay in Essaouira where the weather’s always nice.

Well, it should have been, anyway. Boxing day was spent booking the rest of the holiday (Ancient city of Fes, Sahara Desert, Roman Ruins, camel rides, etc.), so today we would be able to relax and enjoy the… rain and gales.

I’m about to consult the soothsayers at the BBC about the next few days. Wish me luck.
