Closing thoughts

Or you could just read everything from bottom to top! If anyone wants specific travel details or other information, just post a comment with your email address, and I'll reply.

For all the questions regarding safety, not one thing happened to me during this trip, not one crime or dangerous incident, not on this trip or any of my previous trips. Yes, when it happens, some of it is just plain bad luck, and there are things you can do to minimize the chance, such as don't walk on deserted streets late at night alone -- a good rule for most any place! The closest event was an attempted pick-pocketing on the bus from the train station to the medina in Fes. I foiled that pick-pocketing attempt, and a similar thing happened twice in New York, once foiled my me, once foiled by my friend. So you see, despite what some people say, one need not be too intimidated by possible crime to travel!

TO ALL: HAPPY TRAILS!
