"Planes, trains, and automobiles... and camels" -Izzy

I'm back! I had a fantastic trip in Marruecos.  Imbibed lots of mint tea.  I saw bugs I had never seen before, smelt and tasted scents and flavors I had never been exposed to before, and for the first time in my life, struggled with an actual language barrier (My casi-zero knowledge of French and Arabic was well noted... so I signed up for French 101 next fall!).  With 10 days, we were able to visit multiple towns with a nice variety of surroundings: desert, mountains, city, coast.  We met a lot of great people every place we went, each with refreshing stories to share.  The trip was especially valuable because I experienced what it's like to be a minority.

In other news, I found 100 durham in my pocket while unpacking this evening.  Oops.  Only checked my wallet when we were still in Marruecos, I forgot about pockets.  A more detailed trip-summary will follow in the next few days, with pictures of course.  I need to catch up on the classes I missed yesterday and today first though.  The nice weather we're supposed to have this weekend probably won't help my productivity...

Oh, and incase you're curious, yes we rode camels.  We went on a two day - one night camping trip in the Sahara.
