I am appalled to report that your Dad ate a quarter of a sheep head at stall 76 last night. The locals love it! Apparently it is a little like greasy lamb slopped up with bread. Afterward we treated ourselves to a ride home in a horse and carriage. Think adventure rather than romance as the bargaining, the complexity of the language, and our insistence on receiving change, made this quite the experience.
Today we travelled through the High Atlas Mountains. It was stunning. The snow-capped mountains, the Berber Villages, the Casbahs, and the colourful crafts sold along the side of the road. In fact scenes from Lawrence of Arabia, the Gladiator and Game of Thrones were all filmed in this area. An additional treat were the yummy local dates and nuts our guide fed us as we explored.
More desserts and Casbahs as we head toward the Sahara tomorrow.
You are Always in my Prayers. Love Mom.
