The Venus Adventurers for this Moroccan trip have finally been gathered together by Julie and Adil in Casablanca. Sue (from Australia), Kate and Erika (from South Africa and Switzerland) and I drove down with them from Marrakech.There we met Angela (from Chicago), Claire and Sarah from New Zealand.
