As an expat I find people are always asking me, "how do you manage your prescription meds when you are living in Africa?" So I thought I would share some of my experiences with you. First of all, no one has ever asked me about my prescription meds. But I don't care. I'm forging forward. … Continue reading Man Are We Ever Spoiled with Convenience.
Sorry! Sorry! It's been awhile since I posted. It's been blissfully busy this month. I took a little trip to Essaouira for a weekend away. Business is picking up. Lots of my local family are around so we've been having really great visits for tea and meals. Its also that in-between time of year where … Continue reading Dribs and Drabs
After a year in Marrakech it turns out finding your way around is easy. Finding fixed locations? Not so much. I am pretty savvy when it comes to getting around a town, and for the first few months I was here I made it my business to get to know this town. If for no other … Continue reading Google > Search
So here it is Christmas time and around again comes my weird and indeciferable relationship with this holiday. In case you don't know me - I hate this season. But my feelings about it are not just simple disdain. It's far more complicated than that. And it goes back years and years. In my family, … Continue reading Oh Look – Christmas. How Fun.
I said just last night, "if you are going to be a traveller, period, you have to be flexible and prepared to give a little." It has been my experience that Morocco takes this to brand new heights.

My birthday's on Sunday, marking the 2nd one in Marrakech. This year I will spend the actual day basking in the glow of a decadent massage at the Four Seasons. Can't wait! Of course this is such a bittersweet time. My beloved dad and I shared birthdays you see. He was the 15th of October … Continue reading Mid October
A lot has been happening since I returned and things have taken on a new energy for me. It's nice. I feel much more settled and at home than I did the first 5 months. I didn't realize there was anxiety underlying things but there was and it's gone now. I'm settled in. I live … Continue reading Rubber Stamp Factory. Again.
I started this little blog one year ago today to chronicle a trip to Morocco. And what a trip that turned out to be eh? (I had to add the "eh" to assure you I am still as Canadian as the Rocky Mountains and maple syrup). I am sitting in a cafe on Mohammed V, … Continue reading Its October Again
Well that was awkward. I’ve lived in this apartment for only a few short days and as with anything there were a few hiccups. First and most importantly my washing machine jammed. Inside the machine at the time were two towels. One suspect towel that was here when I moved in and one towel that … Continue reading Safety First
