This Morning

I'm posting partially this morning to tell you how much I think about my blog friends on a regular basis. Now, not in a weird or bad way, but just while I'm taking pictures or I see something they've mentioned, or I remember some advice they've given. Now most of the people I call "blog friends" may not even read my blog, because I'm a bad reader and don't usually leave comments, due to time issues. I intend on doing it, but usually I'm using Google Reader to save time and I'm not on their actual site. Anyway, to the authors of the blogs I do read, sorry if my stalker ways offend. But really and truly, I do love your blogs.

So, I wasn't sure if Pink read my blog, and would ever see this photo, but just this morning she left me a comment from her page Casapinka
So Pink, this is partly for you and partly to show what I've been learning from Stephanie and Mav of 3191. Morning's natural light is quite nice :)
















My other reason for posting is that the US Embassy in Casablanca's website, is not being helpful! This link is the first thing my dad read when he went looking for info on contacting them. I think he needs to talk to a Moroccan or an American living there to really get the real feel of what could happen. But he wants an unbiased opinion.

Come to think of it, why are we basing life on "what if's"?
Ok, before I get frustrated, I'll stop*deep breath*everything will be alright. So, does anyone know how to ease a father's mind about his 18yr old daughter going to Marrakech, Morocco in March? Suggestions are welcomed...

Until later~Hugs

They're going to treat you like a princess in Morocco, trust me!

What I want to know is, where did you get those cheap tix? :)

Hadassah Intisar said...

Good to know, but hey, can you tell my dad that ;)

I found the tickets at cheaptickets.com they are $397 from ORD(Chicago) to RAK(Marrakech) and this is like one or two weeks(March 13-22) where they are actually this cheap. I haven't bought them yet, but it's a such a good deal I'm urging my dad to get whatever info he needs so I can buy them asap.

Fine photos. I enjoyed visiting Casapinka. Thanks for the reference.
The trip sounds very exciting.

Hadassah Intisar said...

You're welcome, Don. I'm glad you enjoyed it.

If your Dad would like to chat with me about Morocco, he can email me (liosliath AT yahoo DOT com) and I can tell him allllll about at. :)

My Marrakech said...

So what's going on with the trip? Did you buy the tickets?

Hadassah Intisar said...

Liosiath, thank you! I will let him know.

It is so wonderful to know you all are behind me.

I haven't bought the tickets yet. As soon as he gives me the go ahead I will have to find out exactly who is going with me and then I will buy them. Know anyone who wants to go to Marrakech??

Hey Hadassah.. I know we've talked a LOT about the whole Morocco trip thing..I'm not 18, but as an American woman that went there several times (essentially cold the first time with only Simo there that I knew, so not terribly far from your situation), and having traveled to over 20 different cities all over the country, perhaps your dad might wanna get some info? I'd be happy to talk to him about it...answer any questions he has from this point of view.. I have also had dealings with the embassy in Casa...
