Early Morning Travels
Up at 3 this morning to get the bus to Pisa for a flight at 6am to Morocco! I can’t believe I’m going to Africa! Hello stamp in my passport!
We did a lot today too. We went through the souks near Djemaa-El-Fna Square in Marrakech, did some shopping, found an old Koranic School (Ben Youssef Medersa) with some amazing architecture and a super cool calligraphy guy who wrote our names (several times) for us as souvenirs. We also got semi lost but found our way via a Berber Dyer who also led us to the Dyer’s Souk, where we bought Berber blue scarfs and learned to tie them into a turban! Fun stuff! Jmaa-El-Fna is insane! It’s filled with monkeys, falcons, snake charmers, orange juice stands, trinkets, nuts and dried fruits, the list goes on! Can’t get enough tajine and orange juice! Yum!
