Sitting here in le cibercafe in Moulay Idriss, we are recovering from our disastrous attempt to follow directions to ask shopkeepers the price of several items; instead, we purchased a child’s hat and a pair of knockoff flip flops. Additionally, we present a list of our mishaps from the last 45 minutes:
Counting our failures is both discouraging and exciting, and it solidifies the golden pereption of a set of clueless American tourists. Failures make us flexible, patient, and frustrated beyond belief, but our efforts only bring us closer to the space and each other. All is well, and if at first you don’t suceed, try, try, try, try, try (try) again!
