    I think I might have been tempted to keep quiet about that, otherwise everyone will want to have a go!

    I understand there's quite a few hotels like that in Amsterdam as well.

    It sounds like a good opportunity for a cool trip. Go for it! Just carry a nice wooden walking stick around if the thought of those snakes bother you, so you can smack them if they come close. We've done that forever and a day as kids if we went out in the desert-take a good stick! It was also useful for bothering younger siblings when needed......

    I should, I suppose, make this thread current. It was 28 degrees when my plane landed, or 82 in real money. Almost a palindromic temperature.

    I have heard many snake charmers. I've not looked.

    You're missing some unseasonably mild but damp weather with occasional flashes of bright sun.
    Oh and it's windy, very windy.
    By Friday, its getting colder so I might need to roll my sleeves down

    I've nothing in my head, got a floor for a bed, my future's at the bottom of a teacup. I've half a pair of shoes and no time to lose, I'm wondering when I'm going to wise up.

    It's not as bad as Steve Hammond tells it. I've found places to eat, for example. The temperature went above 30 by which I mean it was hot out. I walked around the walled Jewish cemetery and the tombs of the Saadian dynasty, I can find my way from the kasbah to the far end of the souk and back, and I have paid sensible negotiated prices for essentials off stalls.

    Today being a Friday, things are very quiet outdoors. I have eaten, taken coffee and may do both again later.

    I've arranged a trip to the mountains tomorrow, which may involve coming back on Monday but I'm definitely not carrying a laptop with me. I shall have my camera though. The sky has so far been consistently cloud-free and at no time could the temperature be described as chilly. Night-time in the mountains may differ in that regard. I have my leather jacket to hand.

    I may, just possibly, have a broken foot, I can't yet tell. A large stone on a mountain path turned under me as I stepped on it. It's not a sprained ankle this time.
