more moroccan photos

Vacations are so fleeting. We jumped back into work and eventually unpacked. Coy has already left again- a few days in Mobile before being sent to Austria for a couple of weeks. So I thought I would avoid writing school reports by adding some more shots from the trip.

When we went to the coast, a highlight was buying fish from the local market and then having it grilled up at a stall in the corner.

Also, did you know that we did the expected and bought a rug? To our credit, we avoided the purchase when we had been dropped off at a carpet emporium where we were slammed by every salesman's trick in the book- the highlight being the divide and conquer when they led the Blocks into one room for negotiating and left us to our own bargaining.

Stands of nuts, dates, and spices were in the huge square in Marrakech.

The architecture was amazing.
