Morocco was a dream!




Pinch me.....

Hi people. I got back yesterday evening. I had the time of my life! I'll be blogging very soon about what i got up to, the people i met, the sounds, the sights, the smells (not all pleasant!) etc etc.

Morocco is an amazing country. So far removed from what you can imagine if you havent been there. I would whole heartedly recommend it.

The highlight of my trip was hiking in the High Atlas mountains. Words to describe the experience fail me.....!!! But it's still great to be home

Here are some pictures....

Glad to see you have been bitten by the Maroc bug. Did you go for a hammam?

My folks arrived in Casablanca yesterday for a 3 week tour..

@Jeremy - All i can say is Oh. My. God!!! It was amazing!!!

Thanks again for the fashion advice, which was, in actual fact wrong (lol, just kidding). However, although i did see a large number of western women in short shorts and spagetti strap tops, i decided to remain conservative cos i was already attracting enough attention just by being 'du noir' and on my own..

I did go for a hammam. It was quite an experience and actually deserves a post of its own...

Welcome back babe. I'm still gutted you went without me men. Good to see you had a nice one.

UndaCovaSista said...

@ atutu - Aaaah....je suis si désolé, mon cher. La fois prochaine peut-être....?

Thanks. I had a lovely time. As i climbed up the steps to the plane on the way home, i turned round and said Arnie style, 'I'll be back'...

@ bighead, - Aaah. I wish i could have taken you with me, i'm sure we would have had a cracking time! And yes, thank God o, cos i pulled 1 or 2 stunts that could have gone wrong, but i'm back safe and sound.

@ Ibo Dude - Hey, thanks o! Dont you like the pictures ;0). and yes, Maroc truly rocks...

@Nyemoni - yes, it-inn (lol). Thanks o! and you're welcome..

@Jaja - Wish you could have been there too. It was great fun...

@Arewa - thanks for your concern about my head. It's still intact...Again, wish you could have been there as well...

@ Ugo - Lol. Nuffin do me o! Please, please do that. You owe it to yourself to visit at least once in your life time...

@UKNaija - I havent been to Kano myself, but I was struck by the similarity with Sokoto. I guess you could say the landscape is similar to most northern nigerian cities. And yeah, it is one of those places you instantly fall in love with..

@30+ - Pleeeeaaaase go. You MUST go. And stay tuned for hot gist...

@ Queen - Aaah. There were lots of Americans tourists. Apparently, you guys spend more than your European counterparts. Yep, more pics to come...

@Hopeful b - thanks o! I was astounded by the beauty of the place myself. More gist to come as soon as i shake myself out of the daze i'm still in and can actually put something down in writing...

Miss Opeke said...

I muz say I am jeolous...Can't wait to hear gist about Morocco. Are those pictures from your sightseeing?

SOLOMONSYDELLE said...

I have heard that Maroc can have an incredible effect on visitors.

Welcome back and can't wait to read about your journey and the smells...

lol!

SOLOMONSYDELLE said...

BTW, did you get to see the new episode of Heroes? What did you think?

UndaCovaSista said...

@Miss Opeke - Hey, girl. Yep, all pics were taken by moi. Watch this space for all the gist...

@solomonsydelle - Everything you've heard is true! The smells were mainly donkey shit (mmm, nice ;0)). You're probably ahead of us with Heroes. I missed it the first time round on digital tv and i'm only just catching the first season on terrestial tv...
