Blog48-lovin our time in Morroco-part1

Morroco, as it turned out was about as beautiful and exciting as a holiday can be. More than we had expected, nicer people than we were prepared for, and far more rugged than expectations. The buying of khilim rugs from the rural villagers as well as tapestries, was a prime reason for the visit. Walking open air markets that have been held in the same central square for over 400 years is certainly another valid reason, not too mention haggling over everything you consider and ending with a smile no matter the outcome. No doubt, we shall return.

  1. More memories of me riding a donkey, I was about Pine’s age, also the shopping and the beautiful rugs and everything so colorful. Did you see snake charmer’s? They were every where and of course wanted $$. The first thing of the airplane (which had flatish tires!!) was the little boys ran up to each couple (this was a tour) and attached themselves to each couple, our little guy was “Hassan Charlie Brown” He followed us all over the city and the entire tour and would run and get us bottled water and show us where to shop, for of course a tip at the end, guess thats how they made money and we were told not to bring any of the local money home with us because it was not worth anything and we could not exchange it anywhere, so Hassan Charlie Brown and his buddies made good tips. The local people would also put big snakes around our necks and then take our pictures and want $$. Very different from any other place I have traveled for sure.

It would be great to hear from you!
