Not expecting this accompanying tribe, I hard- ly had enough change to pay for all the tickets. Later, returning to the hotel, the door was locked for the night, but fortunately the floor guard happened along at that very moment. Speaking through glass doors in my best Castilian Spanish I convinced him I was a bonified guest and he let me in.

Next morning I walked alone through a pomegranate orchard, where a few overripe fruits hung low within reach, cracked open with ripeness, the red juice there for drinking. In an adjoining date palm grove, two boys, one brown, one black, threw stones to knock down the ripe fruit. They were pleased with their reward of one French Franc each. A Bedouin charwoman trudging through sand dunes on her way to work at the hotel paused. I bought her two heavy silver bracelets, ex- quisitely carved with Arabic graphics. ARer another night in Casa- blanca we arose early to ride a greatly overloaded bus east through the Atlas mountains to French Algeria. We were the only Caucasians aboard. A roof rack was piled high with passenger bags, ours the only suitcases. Ahalfdozen chickens, legs tied together, squawked and flutter unhappily roped to the top rail along a tiny lamb bleat- ing lonesomely for his mother that was standingbeside the bus hopelessly returning its call. In Algeria we visited a natural gorge at Constantine that rivaled the Grand Canyon. Prolific Ro- man ruins at Carthage, in Tuni- sia, one time eastern capitol of the Roman Empire showed us its former greatness. At Bejala, Algeria, we boarded a tramp steamer to Gibraltar then on to Malaga to await the Holy Land Cruise in May, 1932. Edwin proved to be an accu- rate scheduler of time and place and we met the cruise ship in Genoa, Italy May 1. The Holy Land was summer- hot.

You could see the Green Nile flood plain in the distance as heat waves rolled over gray sand dunes in every direction. Now it was time to return to London.
