Oh, Morocco!

Oh, Morocco!

We set off for Africa after leaving southern Spain
Morocco’s a place not easy to explain

Jon Pace came to visit, he’s our first and our last
The two weeks together went by way too fast

After arriving in Tangier we killed time on the beach
Marrakech to be the next destination to reach

We took an overnight train which was really relaxing
And arrived the next morning to a town far more taxing

Monkeys, snake charmers, juices and leather
Beggars, merchants and really hot weather

Scarves, purses, tajines and rugs
Lovely Riads but watch out for bed bugs

The medina itself is a lot to take in
Not buying as a foreigner is an original sin

You can’t leave without seeing the medina at night
Thousands of people- a remarkable sight

But the city was a bit to much for us three
So after two days we decided to flee

Hiking and nature were much more our speed
The High Atlas Mountains is just what we need

Mountainside villages made for a picturesque view
With numerous trails and hiking to do

The town is small without many roads
With mules and donkeys carrying large loads

We stayed in a guesthouse which was cheap yet cozy
And met two fine Brits called Freddie and Rosie

The town of Imlil was a great place to be
But we had to continue our Moroccan journey

We set off for Fes to spend a few days
Walking through streets that are more like a maze

Talking politics and life over cafe and tea
It was really special to be traveling as three

Eating couscous and tajines for every meal
Cities in Morocco have a unique appeal

But after ten days, we were ready to part
We’ll forever hold Morocco close to our heart
