Where I stayed
We also went to the place where they make pottery. It was very cool! They did everything by hand - from the beginning when a guy mashes up the clay with his feet in a big pit (that looked like fun!) to making it on a pottery wheel then they painted it, then they let it dry in the kilns, then they cut it into pieces for mosaics and tables and buildings. They use olive pits to make the fires in the kilns, so the smoke is very black
We also tried to find a bookstore that sells English-language books because I was looking for a Harry Potter book. We could not find Harry Potter but we did find Call of the Wild and White Fang, by Jack London. I am reading Call of the Wild now.
Last night we had a private dinner at a restaurant near our hotel called La Maison Blue. It was private because there were no other guests there. They wrote our name on the table in jewels and had lots of tangine pots with special dishes (tangines are the cone-shaped pots that they use in Morocco). A man played sitar music and it was very cool. But Lu and I both fell asleep before dessert, again!
Today we walked around the medina by ourselves and did not get lost! If you had to go shopping for grocery it would be very different. You would have to buy everything at a different shop - there is no supermarket. You would have to go to one place to buy meat, another to buy break, another to buy vegetables, another to buy rice or pasta, and another for dessert. And you would also have to go to lots of different shops for shoes and clothes and things like toothbrushes and school supplies.
