Home sweet home
It was a real whirlwind of a week, with many pleasant memories (new and delicious foods, great weather and the constant entertainment of street performers in the Djemaa el Fna) and only a few less welcome ones (uninvited bottom pinching and the unrelenting sales patter of the souqs).
Away from home it seems easy to notice the ways in which we're different from other countries, so it was nice to find that the English and Morrocans share the love of a Nice Cup of Tea and a Sit Down. We may prefer ours with a splash of milk and a chocolate digestive instead of packed with fresh mint and served with a delicate Kaab el Ghazal cookie, but the sentiment remains the same.
It's nice to be back.
