Greetings from Morocco.  Oh my gosh.  No; let me rephrase that .......OH MY GOSH!!!!!

This will be short as the keyboards here are a bit different and it is difficult to type.  We arrived in Tangiers by ferry and everything was quite easy.  It was drizzling when we arrived but it cleared up later:  Our hotel is in the medina which is the old part of town.  Every city has a medina.  The hotel was built in 1930 and all the spys gathered here during WW II.  We were met by our guide and a private driver:  Morocco is all hustle and bustle.  Cars share the streets with motorcycles, bikes; pedestrians, and donkeys pulling carts.  We  were taken to a very exclusive hotel to have lunch:  It overlooks the ocean and  is very swanky:  They told us to order the fish since we are by the sea.  We each ordered a different kind and each was delicious:  Even Randy said so and you know Randy does not like fish unless there is tartar sauce:  After that they took us to ride camels on the beach.  I have a few pictures but it is difficult to get them to you.  I finally found a USB cable but the computer I am currently using is archaic.

I must say I am glad we have a guide.  This country is overwhelming.  We met a young couple on the ferry that were going to be here for ten days with no guide.  Now that I am here I am realizing how gutsy they are.

We will eat dinner at the hotel tonight:  Just think .... we had breakfast in Europe and dinner in Africa.

I am getting frustrated with this sticky keyboard so I will say Bon Jour for now.

Did I mention French is Morocco's second language?

We're glad you both went with a guide too! We're kinda hoping you guys come back in one piece!

So, a camel ride on the beach huh? How romantic... we think! ;) It sounds like you two are having fun in the busy atmosphere over there! We're looking forward to pictures! Be safe and we'll see you soon!

Hi Stevie!
Just had a chance to sit and read all of your travelogue and view the pics. Sounds like a great time! I really need to start taking advantage of being able to fly for free and have some of this fun you are having!
Thanks for sharing your fun with me. :)
Hugs, Becky
