Belinda and I shall be splitting from the main group for a couple of days (their route is shown in italics) but we shall meet up again in Zagora for the desert crossing.

Once we leave Morocco we shall have a gentle, unplanned bimble up through Portugal and Spain.  I hope to be in Salamanca for the Easter fiesta so that I can share it with belinda this time.
