    Perhaps even a gay black Mexican? Is it at least possible?
    Gay too? No, I think that's too much, straining credibility.

    If you pay for the day the driver stays for the day.

    Ah, I see. So it was a formal business? A former roommate of mine before I bought my house went to Jamaica for a couple weeks. Drivers would show you around but there was some wheeling and dealing involved. It's kind of colored my perceptions of guides in undeveloped countries.
    Whoever criticizes capitalism, while approving immigration, whose working class is its first victim, had better shut up. Whoever criticizes immigration, while remaining silent about capitalism, should do the same.

    This is also true of the monkeys on Gibraltar. Just saying. ;D

    edit: actually those monkeys are dicks.
    Damn macaques. ;D
    Yes we stopped at Gibraltar - had too we rented a house in Spain about 45 km north. But it really was a waste. A tourist trap and not even that interesting. If you could get a hotel room on the sea side away from the town and just hike around the mountain that would be cool. Those monkeys were crazy. One started looking at me sideways and following me around. He made me nervous. I was carrying a backpack with a ball cap hanging off a D ring- I think that is what got his attention.

    We went through a company called Journey Beyond Travel to make our arraignments in Morocco. They covered travel, lodging, tour guides, a driver, etc.

    Sounds like the way to do it. I see packages like that in Archaeology magazines. You've inspired me!

    Morocco is much easier to travel in than it used to be. You can drive yourself between the cities, but if you stay in the old town section, you need a guide. And that is what the Wife and I like. We aren't into staying in big hotels in the "new" town.

    There's definitely something to be said for travelling outside one's comfort area. That area of course depends on the person but a little suspense can make things fun. 8)
