We went to Morocco during the spring holidays, April 2011 – and it’s taken forever for me to get around to editing pictures – I’m still not there…. far from it… but in the interests of starting to document some of it and get the editing underway (other than the girls modelling shots!) I thought I’d push myself to put together a taster of what we saw….
we stayed in old converted riads
and explored the souks
where we came upon aladins caves
and other sparkly things
and we drank mint tea
and had olives for breakfast – much to Saffy’s delight…and we explored Roman ruins (Yeye would be so proud!)and played in fields full of wild flowersand we went to a tannery..and saw them making leather for the many, many shoes we sawand we played with kittens on the streetand we sampled the local beer and took an overnight trainand had ice cream, and the girls had their very first dip in the Atlantic Oceanand we shopped for carpets…but didn’t buy..and we crossed the Djemaa el-Fna, several times, day and night…and saw a medicine man, touting his potionsand drank more mint teaand danced in any open space we found… of which there were many!And we got to spend time hanging out with Tommyand with KirstyAnd having cuddles together…..I’ll edit more and come back with more – soon I hope – and then maybe I’ll get to have a look through the pics of the girls and me on our summer in China and our trip to Cambodia!
