    I also love the olives in Morocco. They have a buffet of different flavored olives -- all very amazing.

    Ok. Last thing for (my) night. The wife heard the call to prayer for the first time. She woke me up mid-night and asked what that sound was, I said it was just the call to prayer. She then said, "How should I know that?? I've never heard it before." I said, well, I love that sound -- it is one of my favorite sounds ever. She agreed it was beautiful.

    I picked up a few rugs as I lost most of my good ones in my divorce, and I also picked up some cool kids stools. Tomorrow I am off to Marrakech.

    I haven't lived the life I wanted, just the lives I needed too at the time.

    Pick one made from thuya burl, so we can cut it up and turn into wa handles Have fun in Marrakech. We were there with a group of 4 friends almost 25 years ago, lived in a small hotel just around the corner from the main plaza - couldn't have been expensive because we had no money. Bit that was during ramadan, so once the sun went down, everybody was out there and it was crazy, exotic, chaotic etc, in a very fascinating way. Fond memories.

    More, more! Maybe we should have a travel pic section where people can show pics of places of interest - I am sure things like markets etc will find some interest.

    More pictures, please. Hope you and your family are having a great time.
    And I second the travel pics section suggestion. I'll be flying into Tokyo second week in March, and there will be many photos.

    I was in Tangiers in 1970. First I got taken to an interrogation room in the airport where they grilled me about U S Air Force deployment strength. (Name, rank and serial number, followed by threats of imprisonment as a spy. But they let me go.)

    The streets were filled with gangs of child pick-pockets and drug sellers, and we witnessed a knife fight in the middle of town. I had enough of Morocco, thank you very much.

    It is surely much different now. However, I would check this first:

    If you reach the age of 60 without becoming a curmudgeon, you haven't been paying attention.
