Note to self: don’t go tanning on a beach in a city called “the city of wind.” You will most certainly be consumed by sand.
In other news: I SAW CAMELS TODAY! Okay, it wasn’t really legitimate because it was just some guys on the beach trying to make a quick Dirham enticing foreigners to ride them… but I saw like 7 and they are WAY HUGER than I had pictured. I mean, I’m always surprised by how big horses are in real life, but these guys made horses look downright manageable. (The camel guys were riding horses too). My prof got all up-in-arms about it because we aren’t in the desert and thus the appearance of camels isn’t legit but it doesn’t make me want to ride them any less. He said we should be able to ride some in Marrakesh on Sunday which also isn’t ideal in his eyes but it’s better than on the beach.
The hotel does not, in fact, have free wi-fi which is a HUGE bummer so we all went together and bought 5 days worth of unlimited access from Pete’s room and that’s what I’m using now. This is not ideal but its better than not having it at all. Now we get to put our sharing/taking turns lessons from kindergarten to good use.
I hope that’s an adequate explanation for why today and yesterday’s posts have been so lackluster. Sorry readers! Sunday night you will have a super post with pictures of the Gnawa festival and of CAMELS! Now I shall go take a nap in order to rest up for tonight’s festivities. Have a great Friday!
