natural colors

This is a hanging camel head. I was taken aback at first... and then I was just focused on how tall the crown of its head is.

fast paced slow processing

I more or less decided I didn't want to do any more tour groups after this one. Not because of any negative experience or mishap. I was impressed with the organization. I liked our tour guide. I don't know how I would've fit nine cities into ten days.
But for how expensive it all turned out to be, I would have liked more time to lose myself in the markets.

fridge cleanout

We interrupt really really really delayed travel blogging to think about how adorbs Nick Robinson is, how I need a haircut, and how fridge cleanout meals are sometimes my favorite in this sleepless hour...

homestay

I think if there's one thing I'd do differently about going abroad in college, it's taking more time to find a homestay in Melbourne. For one night in Moulay Idriss, we stayed in an elaborately decorated bed and breakfast with a killer rooftop view, and I was obsessed.
I loved the dining area that was situated below the balcony to my room. I loved the rooms themselves with the double doors and the curtained windows. I didn't love that a donkey hauled all our luggage up the many steps, poor guy, but I did love that some people had donkeys for groceries and such. I loved that we could hear the commotion and celebration of the town breaking fast together from the roof.
