First Day in Morocco (#2)

Marrakech, Morocco


After a quick flight (thanks to Tylenol PM) we made it into London Heathrow...we soon discovered the drama that occured during our flight. Due to the heavy traffic and heightened alert in all airports we headed staight to London Luton airport. Many hours later we found ourselves curled up on the floor of the airport getting some shut-eye with our fellow backpackers...thankfully for us we had brought some comfy fleece sleeping bags along (still didnt hit 4 hours of sleep but at least we were warm).
Now we are in Marrakech...spent the day perusing the market (having such a hard time not buying everything in sight but since its still technically Day 1 we are trying to hold back). Its a busy city full of both locals and tourists, regular calls to prayer, and an overwhelming array of yummy things to eat. Our week here promises to be one of relaxation (partly thanks to our air conditioned room and our plan to visit one of the local hammams).

Hi Katandheidi!
It was so fun getting to see you both off from LAX terminal 4. Our flight ended up delayed an hour. When we finally got to Port-au-Prince the next day, we switched on CNN and saw all the excitement in Glasgow & London. We immediatly thought of you two. Glad you got through that mess ok.
Andrea sent us this blog link. How do you have time to do this blogging AND sightsee at the same time???
Great photos!
Hi Carla!

Heidi and Kat - this is amazing that we can "see" you on your trip. Lots of fun for us "family back home" to follow you in this way. Glad to know you're safe. Keep your eyes peeled for pickpockets and stalkers!
Love, Mom/Claudia
