Well, it’s finally here, and that sixty or so hours of traveling (from Nashville to Philly to JFK to Casablanca to Mehdya, where I am currently) just completely took it out of me. I’ll keep this first post short, as I mostly just wanted you to know that I made it okay. I’ll have a decent internet connection for the next four days or so. After that, it’s spotty, probably.
In the first thirty minutes of being in Africa, I managed to see horses, cows, sheep, pelicans (or some kind of bird like that), and donkeys. The morning consisted of security and medical briefings. I won’t bore you with the details of those, but I just got back from hanging out on the beach, where five camels walked by somewhat randomly.
Morocco is truly a beautiful country with a beautiful landscape, all kinds of wildlife, and many wonderful people I’ve already met. I’m ten times more excited than I was when I was nervous a week ago. This is going to be good. Real good.
