RAK, In Action

From Ayana:

We’ve done a bit of time travel for next few days. We are in Marrakesh, Morocco! Hello Africa!!!

 RAK, In Action
It’s frantic, frenetic, hectic – but full of really wonderful people. There are marketplaces all over, selling everything imaginable.

The photo is a little blurry because it was taken from the seat of our caleche. It is a horse or donkey drawn carriage – just as common in the streets as the bikes, scooters, motorbikes and cars.

Marrakesh comes alive at night though, when the food stalls come out on the town square and everyone has dinner.

There’s plenty of kebab and tagine like you’d expect but we’d done that already. What tempted us to stop and have a seat?

A good old fashioned fish fry. In the desert?! Who cares? It was fresh and deeeeeelicious.

What do you do after dinner? Male bellydancers? Soda fishing? Find out next blog post…

Oh that is so cool. I really want to go to Morocco. Do you have any plans to go to Casablanca or Fez? I look forward to these entries!

Wowww score another for the unscheduled stops! Naomi said, “I’m so–” and I interrupted, “Happy for them” before she could get out the J-word. :) We are vicariously enjoying this trip and find it funny that we were requested to record the Amazing Race when Ayana was on an amazing trip of her own. I’m sure she’ll come over, watch it, and be relatively bored. LOL. We got it though and we’ll be happy to re-watch it over meals which you learned how to cook and margaritas which I’m still learning to make.

@ LivingtheDream
No plans for any other cities. Focused our time in Marrakech.

@ ScottFro
Glad yall qre enjoying the posts. I will let Ayana cook since she had the same class I did. Give Babygirl a hug for me.

From Ayana: Phil has been to Marakech already. I have to see where they go next! If that means I have to cook AND make the drinks, so be it.
Thx for recording and see you soon.
