Smile, you're in Morocco!

There was
camel in Taddart and street food in Fez.
snails in Casablanca and pastries in Paris.
tagines with meat and couscous with vegetables.

But always
there were french fries on the side.

rode camels to the desert and climbed the dunes.
watched the video then met the man.
strolled the markets and ancient squares.

But always
we stopped for sweet tea with mint.

There was
snow in the High Atlas and sun in the desert.
green oases by rivers and red earth everywhere else.
bustle in the cities and peace in the villages.

But always
there was Catan.

fed the monkeys and watched the flocks.
braved the lion and the tannery's stench.
toured the mosque and rocked the kasbahs.

But always
we laughed - Ali Babba, Shakira, Mak and their Bodyguard.
