The Last Two Legs of My Africa Trip

(Click here for Part One, and here for Part Two.)

Well, I’ve been home for over a week now and between trying to get caught up on work and getting my sleep back in order (apparently jet lag can last awhile) I have not yet done the final post describing the last two countries of my part of the trip — Morocco and Nigeria. Let’s correct that now.

Day 19: Thursday, July 20 — We arrive in Morocco early in the morning (around 8) but cannot check into our hotel until the afternoon (2ish). Apart from that anticipated bump in the road the hotel was nice, among the highlights of our short stay in Casablanca.

We survived our Red Eye flight and now are enjoying breakfast in Casablanca!

Day 20: Friday, July 21 — We take a tour of the Hassan II Mosque in the morning and then explore the markets in the afternoon.

The primary challenge confronting us concluded yesterday: April left to begin her travels. I’ll be joining her in 10 days’ time. For now it’s just the Maura dog and me in our quiet hobbit hole in the hills…

I’ll try and pick up the blogging pace more over the remaining days before the trip starts and then will hopefully be able to begin daily or every-other-day travel blogging from Africa, all through July…

UPDATED: Maura Went to the Vet Today & She’s Fine

This morning, after dropping off April at work, I stopped to fill up the gas tank and took this photo of the back seat:

We’d gotten out of the house much earlier than anticipated so we had some time to kill before Maura’s 9:45 AM appointment to have a growth examined and likely removed from outside her right ear. Continue reading “UPDATED: Maura Went to the Vet Today & She’s Fine”
