Morocco is amazing but all of this posting has taken the love of blogging out of me for the time being, so more to come later. The short version:
Julia (my cousin) lives in a mountain town that is resorty and cool and at the end of the day, a really nice change from the surrounding areas.
The closest city is Fez, one hour by shared taxi.
They speak Arabic and French. I know like five Arabic words, so I use French. My conversations are sort of pre-school level.
People are really nice, though the women are nice-nice and the men are not always.
I love the Medinas-old parts of the cities surrounded by walls. The streets are as wide as donkeys.
I made some moroccan friends today.
I went to a night club in Marakesh.
I fed some monkeys.
Today I am going to the Sahara!
