PIZZA BY THE METER

Yes! We fearlessly eat any kind of food in any country and Rabat offered us a new experience: pizza by the meter! We were all super hungry and piled into the restaurant. The system works so that you can order 25cm sections, and as many as you like - four making a full meter.  And that is a good start.

We are all hungry!

YAY FRIENDS - CAREY AND ABDOU

Just sayin'.... how great is it that two friends who haven't seen each other for some thirty years, can just meet and pick up from where they left off like nothing ever happened?

This is how great it has been for us in Morocco with my friend Carey and her husband Abdou. (For those asking - Carey and I went to the same private school in South Africa, well, some thirty years ago.) And now we have been able to enjoy Carey and Abdou's lovely hospitality for over two weeks in Rabat. 

It will be hard to leave, but we have invited them to visit us Vancouver - hopefully before another thirty years.

WE ARE IN MOROCCO!

And we are having a great time. Getting over jet lag is going well and our bodies are also recovering from the shock of the local cold snap: as we got off the plane in Casablanca, the temperature was +5 C and it was raining! Our first purchase was a tuque for Lili!
