My time in Morocco is winding down. Tomorrow I leave for the States.
Here’s what I’ve been doing the last few days
Spending time with my dentist extraordionaire
|Dr. Soumaya Benothmane and her assistant|
to get a new smile.
|Sorry, it's a selfie|
Walked up and down this street
eight different times to the dentist’s office
Enjoyed listening to sound checks for Marwazine
a local musical festival.
One of the sound stages is 3 or 4 blocks from the house so we can hear the concerts in the evening. Last night we planned on going to dinner along the river near the medina and listened to Bonga, a folk and semba singer and songwriter from Angola. Until we found out the show didn’t start until 10:00 P.M. Too late for kids on a school night. Instead, we listened to Lauryn Hill from the garden.

My suitcases are packed (picture a sad smile) and I fly out tomorrow morning around 7:00. Sad (picture a sad new smile) to be leaving, but looking forward to seeing family and doggies in Albuquerque.
