A Sidi Yahia Memory

I rode the bus from Sidi Slimane Air Base to the navy base. It took 45 minutes to an hour twice a day. Quite a few of us played pinochle the whole ride, so the time whizzed by. We got adept at shuffling the 80-card deck in mid-air.

I was there just the 1962-63 school year, but I really liked it. I see pictures of the buildings and base housing and it looks bleak now, but back then it seemed pretty.

I’m trying to remember where Sidi Yahia was in relation to Kenitra, Port, and Sidi Slimane. When you are a teenager, those things don’t matter.
