Boiling hot in Marrakech

sunny 42 °C

We are in Marrakesh in Morocco. We came here with Uncle Andrew and Auntie Lizzie.

When we got here three days ago we imidiately felt the heat. It is hotter than Asia. We took a taxi out into the city and saw that there were no buildings taller than a palm tree the only building taller than a palm tree were the mosques. Our hotel is very nice we have a plunge pool a roof top patio and our room has air conditioning. We are very close to the noisy street but we cant hear it. We are ten minutes walk from the market square witch is also known as the square of the dead because criminals heads were put on display there. The market square is very big and is fifty percent orange jiuce stalls. There is also lots of restoraunts, snake charmers and monkey trainers. The next day we met up with our friends from Edmonton and went to try some snails. The snails tasted like well muscle with gooey stuff in them. By the time we got back to the hotel it was ten.

The next day we went on a hike in the Atlas Mountains. It was so fun we had to cross tiny little home made plank bridges and scramble up rocks it ranks number one in all the hikes i have ever done. The next day we went to the tanneries and saw them washing goat camel sheep and cow skins in chemicles with their bare hands it must hurt it smelled so bad we had to have mint leaves in our faces at all times.

The next day we went to a water park with our friends Kioshi, Taro and Kaito. The water park had 4 slides witch we spent most of our time on. One was called the boa and was so fast you barely had time to take in a breath at the end before you hit the water. There was also a wave pool that ran for five minutes every half hour. The next day we had henna at one o clock with our freinds they were a bit late and me and Neve were already done by the time they got there. Everybody got non natural except me and Neve because when you got the natural your whole arm stung. The non natural henna was black and the natural was orange.

Hi All! Wow, have you been having an amazing adventure! Your stories are awesome James and of course so great to see all the cool pictures-really liked how the big ground hog critter in France posed for you. Morocco looks really neat and we have been having record heat here too. Your countdown is on Arin? Hard to believe! Still miffed about missing England, but see you soon. Jack asks when you are home all the time! xoxo Lisa
