Tuesday evening Samir and Zany head to Dubai where they will stay for a couple of days to get rid of jet lag before flying on to Casablanca. On the 5th of May they will stay overnight in Rabat. On the 6th they take the train for Fes and finally home to Riad Zany.
There is a farewell sauna party on this Sunday to make sure they go off clean and well fed!
I will attempt to keep you up to speed about their travels. Following the Fes Sacred Music Festival Zany is taking a trip with Carrie to Spain for research and then in July/August she will be in France and Ireland.
In Ireland Samir is doing research for a novel and meeting with Irish singer Colum Sands in Rostrevor. He will also be having a pint or two with Yvonne and Mark at the Yellow House in Rathfarnham (Dublin).
The Yellow House
1 Willbrook Road Rathfarnham, Dublin 14
Tel: 01 493 2994
Named after the unusual shade of the bricks with which it is built, the landmark pub of Rathfarnham makes a perfect rendezvous, with no chance of confusion. The tall and rather forbidding exterior gives little hint of the warmth inside, where pictures and old decorative items relevant to local history repay closer examination. (Traditional bar food is served in the lounge and there’s a restaurant upstairs serving evening meals and Sunday lunch.)
