Although interesting - he was more of an art history lecturer than a tour guide. We walked for blocks and blocks without dialogue of what we were seeing or where we were going. Then, we would stop and have a long, repetive lecture about the artwork.
The Santo Spiroto church is an anomoly in the city of Florence. Looks like a chapel in a Mexican village. Inside, it is splendid Italian. It contains a wooden crucifix attributed to be one of the first of works by Michalangelo

The down pour of rain hit while we were walking home.
Day 2 : Marrakech --IMLIL - AROUMD - SIDI CHAMHAROUCH - IMLIL--Marrakech. We set off today towards the southwest skirting the Berber town of Imlil (1740m), known as Morocco ’s ‘Little Chamonix’, set, as we are, in the upper level foothills of the Western High Atlas mountains of the Toubkal National Park. With streams and paths branching out in all directions, we traverse the Tamatert Valley until we reach the hamlet of Achelm to strike out for some 4km towards the south towards the Berber village of Aroumd (Aremd) (1843m), passing the hamlets of Taourirt, Targa, and Imoula, up and down the stark slopes, the jagged Western High Atlas peaks of the Jbel Toubkal Massif - at 4167m the highest peak in North Africa - before us, with her awe-inspiring sister peaks the Jbels Aguelzim (3547m), Aksouâl (3847m) and the Adrar Adj (3122m) watching us all the way. We shall stop at Aroumd to visit this rather singular village in the Assif Aït Mizane Valley , built seemingly house upon house on a large moraine spur overlooking ancient irrigated terraced fields of barley, corn and vegetables and always surrounded by almond and walnut trees. We thence carry on for another 8km.to the equally-quaint village of Sidi Chamharouch, a Berber village set beside a waterfall and small stream, again with its pisé homes seemingly built somewhat chaotically one into another. This village is a place of pilgrimage for devout Moslems and it is where there is a marabout shrine – forbidden to non-Moslems - said to be a relic of a pre-Islamic religious and naturalist cult. We take a break for a picnic, within full view of Jbel Toubkal, prior to setting off back down the other side of the valley at a gentle pace back to the delightful Douar imlil.
The Chuskies in action, climbing the mountain with all our stuff on their backs - amazing people!
We went to Mai Chau (3.5 hours SW of Hanoi) for a long weekend and had a really good time despite the rain. We just bought motorbike ponchos in the market and set off. Daisy's conical hat was a great buy.
