Hey!!! I miss you all. We are in Morrocco still. Spent three days in Marrakech, after one night in Casablanca. All of it was amazing and wonderful and magical. We had planned on staying in and around Marrakech all week, but changed plans and headed southish to whereever the hell are now. Arfoud I think? Tomorrow we head for the Sahara and a camel ride in tents. Probably by the time you read this, we will be on a camel.
This trip has been a blast with random chance after random chance. This is a country where once you “know a guy” you know a bazillion guys who can get you whatever and wherever.
I tried to upload a picture, but my ipad is being all persnickety about it. I have posted a couple on facebook, but not a lot since internet is spottyish, and we cant use our phone internet because it is $20 a mb.
We did go through Ourzazate, and all we could do is roll down the window and sniff to see if it smelled like the Commes des Garcons version. Not really is the answer, but it was a quick sniff.
Morocco feels so foreign and yet so familiar. Even the bargaining, which I normally hate doing has become fun and theatrical.
