We're Going 100 'Round the Bends

MOROCCO | Wednesday, 23 Jul 2014 | Views [325]

 On Friday, we finished class and went to the train station. Specifically, we arrived for class, I realized that I'd managed to miss the combination of Facebook message/in-person conversation and left my bag at my house whereas everyone else had ... Read more >

Ftur in a House

MOROCCO | Monday, 14 Jul 2014 | Views [328]

 On Thursday, we were invited (several days in advance) to join Oussama at his house for Ftour. We told our host families we would be going out that night and waited around at the IES Center until 7. Fatima did come by to lock up, but this time ... Read more >

Ftur on the Beach

MOROCCO | Thursday, 10 Jul 2014 | Views [271]

Remember back to our very first night in Rabat? When we went to the restaurant and danced, and there were other Moroccans more or less our age, and we exchanged contact information? Well, we finally got around to finding a day that worked both parties.... Read more >

Midterms and Commercials

MOROCCO | Sunday, 6 Jul 2014 | Views [392]

 At the beginning of lit class, our professor handed out the sheet that had the questions for our midterm. There were four of them, each of which should be answered in “a small paragraph,” and each of them essentially asked “do ... Read more >

Chocolate for Dinner

MOROCCO | Saturday, 5 Jul 2014 | Views [285]

 On Wednesday, we handed in our papers for the Dakar trip. They were due to our two non-Arabic teachers. Our lit professor was delighted when Megan turned hers in and shocked when the rest of us also handed in our papers. Last year, the students ... Read more >

Something Next to Normal Would be OK

MOROCCO | Thursday, 3 Jul 2014 | Views [481]

 I was right. After a week of Senegalese accents, the politics class was much easier. I say that with the knowledge that I don't need to present this week- we get Friday off to “celebrate the 4 th of July.” So I don't need to worry ... Read more >

Back in Morocco

MOROCCO | Wednesday, 2 Jul 2014 | Views [230]

 We got back from the airport at about the time my family was preparing for lunch. Which was very nice, since that had been much of what I'd been dreaming about for the last two or three days in Senegal. Cynthia's family had told her that when she ... Read more >

Ramadan and Korean Dramas

MOROCCO | Tuesday, 1 Jul 2014 | Views [1649]

 I've been meaning to write about the aspects of Islam I have casually seen in Morocco (particularly my host family) for some time now. The beginning of Ramadan seems like an appropriate time to get around to it.  One of the earlier Arabic ... Read more >

SENEGAL | Saturday, 28 Jun 2014 | Views [284]

 The “hotel” we were staying in at Goree was called “L'auberge la Maison du Marin de Goree.” “Auberge” means “inn,” “hostel,” or something between the two. That's a very quick description ... Read more >

Lectures and Meals on 3.5 Hours of Sleep

SENEGAL | Friday, 27 Jun 2014 | Views [247]

There are breakfasts that are worth getting up early for. There are breakfasts that would have been worth getting up at 7 for. This was not one of them. The best thing I can say about it is that the caffeine in the coffee seemed to be real. It ... Read more >

From the Ocean to Agdal: A Free Day in Rabat

MOROCCO | Monday, 23 Jun 2014 | Views [320]

 On Friday, Cynthia mentioned that her host sister had a surfing lesson at 11:00, so she was going to the beach, and invited other people to come too. So anyone else who was interested and particularly good at finding a small group of Americans ... Read more >

Food, Food, Henna, Food, Tea, Food

MOROCCO | Sunday, 22 Jun 2014 | Views [480]

I've now been in Morocco long enough that I'm forming definite preferences about food beyond “I like this, I don't like that.” One of these preferences is for their fried bread (I believe it's called “rif”) over the more bread-... Read more >

Unofficial Outing

MOROCCO | Wednesday, 18 Jun 2014 | Views [299]

On Monday, we had more classes. There was some confusion about what we were supposed to read for literature, since we were on week two of the class, but there was one poem left in the “week one” packet, and we hadn't yet finished the story ... Read more >

Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner

MOROCCO | Monday, 16 Jun 2014 | Views [236]

Breakfast was a buffet at the hotel. It was my kind of breakfast buffet, by which I mean the ration of bread to meat was at least 3:1. Their bread was pretty global- they had croissants, breads with glaze that I recognized seeing in the Mdnina in Rabat, ... Read more >

Journey to Fes

MOROCCO | Monday, 16 Jun 2014 | Views [271]

Without needing to go to Casablanca for vaccination, my morning (and most of the afternoon) was nice and quiet. I ate a nice breakfast with my host mother and Saida, gave her my laundry so it would be done when I got back at the end of the weekend ... Read more >

Can't Get Lost if I Don't Know Where to Go

MOROCCO | Monday, 16 Jun 2014 | Views [293]

I'd figured that my host father had simply been one day off in terms of when he needed to pick us up. But the next day, he was waiting for Erika and I. He motioned for us to go ahead, and followed us at some distance, watching.   At times ... Read more >

Just Another Day

MOROCCO | Friday, 13 Jun 2014 | Views [324]

We arrived at the center on Wednesday a little nervous about what to expect. Everyone who was taking the politics class was nervous about not having quite finished the reading, or maybe finished but not read it as thoroughly and with as much focus ... Read more >

Just Hanging Out, Hanging Out, Hanging Out with my Family

MOROCCO | Friday, 13 Jun 2014 | Views [327]

The shower is the first thing that I look at and think “I need to put up with this for seven weeks?” Take a typical half-bath, maybe a little wider than normal and with a decent window sill. Shrink the sink so that you can move it into ... Read more >

MOROCCO | Thursday, 12 Jun 2014 | Views [335]

Not since Rome have I been so sure that I was going to get run over. In Rome it was the fault of the drivers. Here, it's because the pedestrians are insane. I'd noticed that a little bit with my walk with Nathan and Erika Sunday, and then a bit more ... Read more >

Are You My Mother?

MOROCCO | Wednesday, 11 Jun 2014 | Views [306]

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 >
