But enough with excuses, let's cover some of the stuff that happened this week. (Oh, and I think I'll be posting links to all my photo albums up once I've gotten the first couple South Africa ones done. Though you could always just follow me on Facebook to keep up to date on it.)
Anyway, this weekend went...differently than I had anticipated. Not in a bad way necessarily, although I don't know if I'd call our activities adventures or misadventures. I'll tell you one thing, though - I've been involved with vehicle incidents three times in as many days. But we'll get to that.
Ah, who am I kidding? The big news of this entry is actually that of another entry. Specifically, the Kilimanjaro entry is finally, finally done. Most of the time was spent uploading the 2-hour video to YouTube, but that's all done now, and I've posted it in the past, so that future generations will never know that there was an issue.Check it out here! But only if you have a lot of time/patience/tolerance for my voice. Otherwise, you, um, you may want to skip it.
Anyway, onto the last couple days!
Actually, no, first, let me give a big "Happy Independence Day!" to all my fellow Americans. Enjoy those barbecues and fireworks extra hard for me. Unless you're reading this after the Fourth, in which case...I dunno, light a few matches and eat a burger?
For those who don't know - I don't really know how that's possible, but bear with me - I climbed Mount Kilimanjaro. And it was pretty cool! I'm not going to write much, because I don't want to, so this will mostly be a multimedia blog entry.
Not too much has happened in the meantime, so don't fret. I'll be back before you know it!
Hey all, this is just a quick note to let you know that Blogger is acting strangely, and not allowing me to access posts, or write new posts, from my computer. Which is annoying, not least because I had one almost-fully-written entry ready for my birthday on the 5th. I can still access everything from my phone, but as you might imagine, this is not the ideal way to be writing things that have the length I normally afford my entries. So stay tuned while I try to figure out some sort of solution to this issue (or, even better, let's hope it just works itself out). Thanks for your understanding!
Wow, the last few days have been a bit of a blur. Chalk that up partially to my lack of sleep, partially to my questionable nutrition during the period, partially to my lack of hygiene, and partially to…well, let's get down to it.
Anyhoo, I m going to start with a bit of a minor rant section. Don't worry, this isn't the kind of bad attitude I was talking about in my first entry when I was visiting Mozambique as a spoiled teen, but there are a couple of things...I think I'll just say, "I'm over it" for the moment.
[Note: This is really a continuation of Post #005. If you haven't read that one yet, and want to know how well I integrate back into college society, I highly suggest doing so. (Spoiler: Not well.)]
After I parted ways with Anass, I got back to the Tetouan bus station, and found myself back in the lovely, discomforting position of not knowing what the hell was going on. I was planning on taking a bus to Fes, to meet up with my next host, Jamal. So I look around at every sign at the ticket office, and not one has the word "Fes" on it.
I bring this up because I just got off the first leg of my flight to Madrid, and I was reminded of it in two different ways.
