Hello customers, I apologise for the lack of full stops but it is an arabic keyboard and they have no need for them = that is a travel tip = carry a keyboard at all times = all is good = John and I both almost ended up eating at different eateries = each of us were pulled separate ways = two men brandishing each arm = we are sweaty raphaels at all times = we apologise if this post has appeqred like a game of consequences

The credit crunch

It would appear that the economic recession has hit the global spice market. These are dire times where the price of cumin has increased ten-fold. We may well have to return to our original plans and dabble too in slavery. This should significantly reduce our overheads and allow us to export spices with greater efficiency. Cinnamon is notoriously expensive and the use of slaves in our other spice sectors will be used to reduce the cost of these whiffy sticks.

The Planning - Day Two

After looking at the photos down the central spine of the Lonely Planet we decided a dress rehearsal was in order. We got hold of some old curtains, safety pins, moustaches and sat under a tent in my room for the start of two days of planning.

Does anyone know how much a tub of oregano would be north of Marrakech?

The planning weekend

John is in the shire Devon for a working weekend full of working lunches for planning. The only map of Morocco we could find was UN issued, so we'll mainly be visiting bunkers, missile test sites along with the odd school, university and hospital. We've got the Rough Guide and Lonely Planet so we're covered to the hilt with all eventualities covered. We're at the stage of visas and jabs, but it's a hassle. Health isn't an issue, we're going for a spiritual experience.

The height of our plans to date has been to buy a job lot of moustaches off eBay and take them as hand luggage. John wants to take his rifle as he's been invited to a game shoot with a sultan called Roger.

Back to working weekend...we're going for a sandwich.

The flights are booked...

all we must do now is formulate business plans and combine manifestos. John's business plan consists of a spice rack and Tom is still working on his manifesto.
