Pictures from Morocco

Wow, I haven't posted for a week! Things have been very busy lately and I don't even know where to begin.

I had mid-terms last week and got through them both with A's. I then had to start writing a first draft for my research paper and turned that in last night. I'm so happy to have it turned in finally. I never thought I would be able to complete it. Now I will have to make more tweaks to the paper and also wait for my professor to give some feedback to tweak it more. I just hope to finish this class with an A.

I have not had a chance AT ALL to read my favorite blogs and I will be doing that today. I can't wait! I've missed them all like old friends.

My husband is still in Morocco. The following are pictures either he or his brother e-mailed to me:

Standing in the Hassan Mosque

His brother at the mosque

With his grandparents

His Grandfather making Moroccan Mint Tea

I've talked with my husband several times and he is doing well. I can tell that it's been great for him to see his family and friends. It's been seven years since he saw them all! He says that he is ready to come back home. He won't be home until November 27.

I am curious what it will be like when he gets back home. He said that being back at home reminds him of why he left his country in the first place. He said that it has really made him think about a lot of things, which is a good thing. He said that when he gets back home he wants to concentrate more on his family and our health versus putting his work and art first. He has apologized many times for the way he has acted and that it will be different when he comes back home.

I hope that it will.

Between my daughter, work, homework, the house, clothes, etc, etc, a lot has been going on.

I really wish that I could go on vacation.

Those are some beautiful pictures. Wouldn't it be great if he could email himself so easily?

The architecture looks stunning. I like it. It's good to hear that you aced the midterms. Good luck on the research paper!

Sometimes it takes being away from home to realise how good you've got it. I hope this is the case and things improve for you on that level.

Good luck on the paper, sounds like you've put in the work to deserve an A!

That is good that he is ready to come home. Sometimes we have to leave one place to appreciate it all the more.

I have to say, the architecture is so beautiful.

I think it's cool you had lots to do. And your husband looks like he's having a fun time. :)

I pray everything really will be better now. I think it will.

Take care!

What a huge and beautiful mosque. Your husband's beautiful photo’s show what an impressive building it is and it’s situated perfectly near the sea.
I’m glad we saw it with our own eyes when we visited Morocco last summer. When I look at the photos, it just feels like we’re walking there again…… :)and enjoying of beauty of Morocco property.
I visited the Mezquita Mosque in Cordoba too, in 2004; that’s also a beautiful building, it has a different architecture, it is not as ‘open’ as the Hassan II Mosque. But some parts look the same, such as the beautiful arcades.

I feel lucky and ‘rich’ that I have the opportunity to visit all these wonderful countries and ‘taste’ a bit of other cultures.
