We are at the Madrid airport in the Neptuno lounge, waiting an hour for our flight to begin boarding.
While this holiday has not been without its challenges, this trip has done exactly what it was supposed to do: help me leave behind some daily cares for a while, be a time of friendship and camaraderie, and give me even more understanding of Morocco (and more reasons to return).
The challenges have included no luggage (found only as we were leaving Tangier) and a lingering touch of The Portuguese Revenge from the local water in Fès.
But the joys!–
the blue of Chefchaouen
that camel ride
several memorable meals
talking with locals
the corniche in Tangier
Kevin’s glee at buying spices at the market in Meknes
the medina in Fès
attentive staff at riads and hotels
medicine delivered to the hotel
sights and sounds and scents (and smells) to fill a lifetime
