And Now the Test

MOROCCO | Sunday, 13 Jul 2014 | Views [182]

MOROCCO | Thursday, 12 Jun 2014 | Views [234]

During breakfast Monday morning, someone made the comment that she was excited for classes to start. By the end of the day, I certainly agreed. My host family and Rabat were both so unfamiliar, I wanted something that I could understand again. And ... Read more >

Are You My Mother?

MOROCCO | Wednesday, 11 Jun 2014 | Views [285]

The next day, my roommate and I woke up in time to be showered, dressed, packed, and leaving for breakfast by 9:00. We came to find that everyone else had beaten us to the breakfast room, though not by too much. (We were supposed to leave at 9:30.) ... Read more >
