On Moroccan time.


“You get a strange feeling when you’re about to leave a place … like you’ll not only miss the people you love but you’ll miss the person you are now at this time and this place, because you’ll never be this way ever again.”

-- Azar Nafisi, “Reading Lolita in Tehran”

We touched down in Casablanca early this morning. Morocco is only five hours ahead of CDT, so jet lag isn’t really an issue, but lack of sleep certainly is. More to come when we are rested. First round of inoculations tomorrow morning. For now, it's an absolutely gorgeous afternoon, about 75 degrees F I'd guess, and we're sprawled around our hotel's rooftop patio, cadging free wireless and views of the city.

Much love back to everyone who's been calling and sending good wishes. And don't forget to sign your comments if you sign in as Anonymous ... otherwise I don't know who to blame for the lame "Casablanca" joke ...
