Back in Fez

Posted by sue on December 29th, 2006

Just a quick post to let y’all know that we made it safely back to Fez yesterday at 3:20 a.m. We had a great time in Spain (Seville, Granada, and Barcelona) and after a fairly challenging train ride from Tangier, we’re back home. This weekend is the biggest holiday of the Muslim year, Eid al-Adha (Feast of the Sacrifice, commemorating Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice his son to God), so the trains in Morocco were overloaded with Moroccans traveling to be with their families for the holiday, so we were particularly relieved when our standing-room-only train arrived in Fez.

More photos on the way from our vacation and final scenes of Fez before we leave. We have our (cold, cold, cold) apartment rented through January 4, at which time we need to go somewhere. We’re moving to Egypt, but trying to find the cheapest way there, so we may go to a coastal town in Morocco like El-Jadida (south of Casablanca) or Asilah (just south of Tangier) for a week or so before flying to Cairo.

    Merry Christmas!

    The Carvajal Family went to Orlando Florida for Christmas. They all say hi and hope that you are going to have a fun New Year. Did you get my Christmas Card? How long did it take to get there? I send you both a big hug.
