We arrived at Chambres d'Amis after a week in the desert camp of Cafe Tissardmine and a wonderful drive across the mountains. I didn't think Karen Hadfield, who'd arranged the accommodation and excursions could give us any more surprises but voila! We were met at Jemaa el Fna onby the riad's manager Jansky, a colourful character whom the whole square seemed to know, and marched through the bustling alleys. Will I be able to find it again??? An then, a coded knock and the door opened. A courtyard with banana trees and upstairs, a cosy salon with a roaring fire and mint tea and Moroccan biscuits awaited us. Rooms were compact but comfortable. I was awaken by the songs of a couple of lovebirds chasing each other on the branches of bourgainvillea. At breakfast, on the roof terrace, we were spoiled with freshly squeezed orange juice and fresh baguette and a lovely smile from the handsome Abd Salam. I would come here again in the summer so I can curl out on the comfy cushions on the terrace with a good book and a pot of mint tea. Thank you, Jansky!
