Riad, Palais El Baddi, Bab Agnaou, Souks, and Jamaa el Fna

I didn’t have a good sleep again, but I did get settled a little better than last night. I gradually adjusted to the new environment. When the first announcer’s voice woke me up, I couldn’t wait to take a shower because I hadn’t taken a shower since I left home. This Riad had three bathrooms, one on each level. The one on the third floor had a simple shower head by the toilet. The one on the second floor was … Continue reading >>

Ahlan Marrakech, Morocco, Finally

After six hours and thirty minutes, we arrived at England Heathrow airport around 6:30 am local time. We had a connecting flight but at Gatwick airport, we had to fill out five forms and go through passport control. Then we spent $70 for tickets to ride a bus to Gatwick airport.
