And we're back! Our trip was fantastic. I can't wait to post more about it. There is so much to tell, I don't even know where to start. Just some of the highlights included:
  •  too many cups of tea to count
  • spectacular sunsets and sunrises in the Erg Chebbi dunes 
  • tile and tile and more tile. 
  • four of the coldest (so so cold) nights of sleep I have experienced
  • falling in love with our driver, Yahia and a tearful goodbye with him in Fes
  • Ben bargaining "like a true Berber" for two beautiful rugs in a women's co-op in the Todra canyon. 
  • the Atlas mountains, hair-pin turns, the Draa Valley and landscapes galore
  • the best meat we tasted in the country at a dirty, awesome roadside grill in Zaida. 
  • kasbahs and souks, medinas and medersas
  • jamon and lots of Gaudi
  • walking the streets in Barcelona
I could go on. But for now, I'll leave it at that. This trip exceeded all our expectations and yet, there is no place like home...
