Rainbow

So my first try at a mosaic is very amateur but I made it for my little girl and she LOVES it. That's what counts. She told me she wanted two and of course Dylan wants a rainbow too.

Loving Their Italian Jerseys

Thanks Uncle Jon and Aunt Helene for the cool shirts. They both wanted to wear them to school the day you left.

Pottery and Mosaics

Helene and I had a very interesting morning at a pottery cooperative in Fes. The stories are too many to even begin to go into here. Long story short we painted a piece of pottery with a lot of guidance and we placed tiles where we were told to make a pretty cool, we'll call it, over-sized coaster.

The highlight of the day for the kids and anyone in our path was a long donkey ride through the streets of the medina. Both Moroccans and tourists were laughing and taking pictures.

Through the Eyes of a Visiting Friend

My friend Tom recently visited and made this movie of one of his experiences here. I have spent over 5 years of my adult life in Morocco so sometimes I lose perspective of what it may seem like to a visitor. This is a good reminder.

Clown Car

When I got Dylan up from his nap today he had zipped all of his crib friends into his sleep sack and taken his whole nap that way! I thought he was almost getting too big for it but clearly he still has some room in there.
