We had a great trip and Said is an absolute gem. He has the capacity to be - just what you need. If you want to chat he chats, if you want to be quiet he is quiet, if you want to ask questions and learn about him, Morocco, Bedouins, Ramadan, Muslims, whatever... he is totally available. He is also a wonderful caretaker, and I decided when I grow really old, and frail I am coming to Erfoud so he can take of me! I haven't told him that yet.
