Morocco was a whirlwind of bikes, scooters, heat and extremely pushy/ enthusiastic merchants, selling everything from slippers to spices. It is a place where you need to watch your back for bikes; or otherwise be mowed down, and be careful of eye contact unless, that is, you really want to buy something.

It's wonderful to have a collaborator.

The gig before ours - or event, would be more accurate a word - was a talk by Professor Brian Cox of Manchester University. I met him afterwards and we took a picture together; my later tweet said "science meets music," but then he was a musician previously, so that has already been done.
