Photos Maroccaines


We arrived in Marrakesh on New Years eve. To our surprise, Chris' friend Fia and her friend Hermann turned up on the same flight as us. We spent the last night of 2011 together at the amazing Grand Hotel Tazi. Below are photos from our days in Marrakesh. We'll keep this blog posted with photos and updates from the travel. Christopher and I will be travelling for three and a half months in West Africa followed by a visit to Ethiopia and, in sh'Allah, to Eritrea if the visa-authorities allow it.

More text will come, but since the process of uploading these pictures was a true test of patience that has to be later. So long!
