Marrakesh, 27-04-11 22.00 ish
The descent into Marrakesh was a bit rough. I was glad i had a windowseat, or i would definately have been sick.
The airport was pretty and clean. Especially outside there was lots of green and flowers. We took a bus into the city and it arrived close to the main square.
The first thing i noticed was that so many people just come up to you and talk or try to sell you something or simply beg for money. A young guy “helped” us find our hotel. It was a bit of an odd situation and it didn’t make me feel at ease. We did reach our hotel and at first i thought it would be a mistake but when we were shown the rooms my mind was put at ease. the rooms were nice, pretty clean and the bonus was a stunning rooftop terrace.
We had some coffee, than decided to go and have dinner on the big square. It was full and lots of people trying to get your attention and try to get you into their stall.
We picked one that mom and dad had gone to last year. The food was really good. We really enjoyed ourselves and afterwards went into the shopping street. It was very busy.

Yesterday I just didn’t have the energy to write any more.
I was so tired and a bit overwhelmed. After sitting for a bit i decided to go to sleep. The beds are hard, which i like as that’s just like home, so i slept wonderfully.
At five there were the sounds of Call to player, which woke me up, but after that i slept till i woke 3 minutes to 7.
I managed to get my hands on some coffee and am avoiding the morning business of the rest, especially the little one. She is sweet and totally adorable but in her need to impress wants to show me every letter she can write and drawing she made. She also lovingly offered to draw hearts in my diary, which i declined.
The sky is clouded over, but hopefully it will clear up a little later on. I have seen a lot of swallows here and a few mintues ago a little bird even curiously almost sat next to me. After my coffee i’m going to see if i can shower and well have some breakfast.
