Weekly Photo: Scammed at the Tanneries – Marrakech, Morocco

Tanneries - Marrakech, Morocco

You know scams happen to the best of us.  I wandered down to the Tanneries in Marrakech, Morocco and of course they said it is free to walk around.  You know you are going to have to pay something, it is definitely obvious.  They let you inside and I realized there was another group walking around but this one with a local tour guide.  I of course … [Read more...]

Morning in the Souk -- Marrakesh, Morocco

I had a bit of a love hate relationship going on there with Marrakesh.  I adored it overall I would say, but there were just some random encounters, etc that just drove me beyond crazy while wandering through the narrow alleyways.  However I found the beauty of the place quite mesmerizing and I enjoyed just watching the daily flow of life move … [Read more...]

Jet lag, tired, anxious…it seems like the regular feelings as I travel home from being away for a while.  I had thought it would have been easy to keep up with writing while away, but that had been harder than I had expected.  It is amazing how time just slips through your fingers when so much else is happening.  I had thought I didn’t have time … [Read more...]
