we got up today, early as hell, to catch the 7am train to marrakech. we were all hellza tired, and we tried to sleep as much as we could on our 7 hour train ride. of course, the train was super uncomfortable, so it was hard to sleep. the scenery that we saw in between naps was really cool though. tons of red colored land followed by yellow dessert followed by goat herders etc. every once in a while, we would pass by an oasis and all of a sudden, everything was green and lush and there were palm trees everywhere…. it was like all of a sudden taking a break and being in hawaii. it’s so weird that this could even exist in the desert.
upon arriving in marrakech, we checked into our hotel which is sooooo much incer than the last one, but more expensive (20$) per a double room. marrakech is really nice. the town seems a bit more laoid back than fez, people seemlconservative, and all the buildings are built out of red stone. it seems much nicer than fez… but more touristy for sure. the medina here isn’t as exciting as the one in fez, not as hectic, but to make up for it, there is this one huge square that every night fills w/ crazy performers, smoky food stalls, snake charmers, performing monkeys etc. this square is really cool.
well, the internet place is closing, so i gotta log off. tomorrow we start a 3 day adventure!! we are taking this tour into the desert of morocco. we’ll be seeing sunsets/sunrise by camel and all this other really crazy stuff! should be cool…\\
