3/9/15 Rabat, Morocco
Our guide, Abdul. Today he wore more comfortable clothes. Check the shoes. He said he has them in different colors.
Hi everyone, I arrived in Rabat yesterday after hours of travel. I flew Air France from Atlanta to Paris Charles de Gaule airport, changed planes and flew to Casablanca. If you ever have a choice of companies, choose Air France. Delta does handle part of their service, but you will notice a huge difference in Delta's customer service and that of Air France. The latter is superb and I've never heard compliments of Delta's service. It's just barely OK......
Examples include phone communication, try it.
In the planes, especially when crossing the ocean, you get wonderful service. Delta does overbook. (They sold 9 seats twice and we were delayed while Air France was taxed with getting us settled.) Enough of that complaint.
We were given dinner one hour after we were in the air. First a menu, then the food. I will publish the photos.
Last night I rested 5 minutes then joined the group for a meeting and introductions. Everyone else had arrived in the morning. I will ask OAT (Overseas Adventure Travel) why I wasn't sent to NYC to join the others. I was the only one on Air France. The rest were on Air
Moroc from NYC directly to Casablanca. I'm not complaining because I met very interesting people by traveling alone.
So, last night after the meeting we had a fantastic dinner on a ship docked on the Bou regreg river, which separates Rabat from the city of Sale´ (that's pronounced the French way, Sal-ay). The ship was made in India of teak wood, special order to be a restaurant. It was then shipped to Morocco. Wonderful meal. We could have wine in that restaurant, but most places follow the Muslim rule of no alcohol.
I'm closing now and will find out how to load the photos.
