          Hello :) I wanna ask whether you think my following plan works? I will arrive at Marrakech on 4 June and want to start the journey to the desert from 5 June to 7 June (with a visit to ait benhaddou in the mid way, then stay at your place). Then take overnight bus to Fes and arrive in the morning of 8 June. Do you think this is feasible? We hope to stay at your place but not sure whether we can arrange it like this. Thank you very much!!
