everything sounds like "welcome home"

an aphorism maybe, but it's nice as it is to be on vacation, it's equally as nice to come home. and so after two+ weeks gone, back i am. of course coming home to a place like san francisco feels a bit like extending the vacation.

i haven't yet figured out how to organize my thoughts and experiences of the trip for a diary. i kept a pretty good journal, consisting mainly of accounts of the days but also included some general thoughts. how to diary something like this though...not sure. haven't ever done it. a plain travelogue would be boring to write much less read. some organizing principle will hit me soon. probably while i'm sorting through the 650 pictures that i took. gotta love having a 1-gig memory card for the camera.

so more details soon, but for now i'll note one thing...if you ever get even a whiff of a chance at it, find a way to spend time in marrakesh. it's touristy, yes. but a few hours during the evening hanging out in the main square, place djemma el f'na (or jemaa-al-fnaa), is something that's sure to get all of your senses engaged.
