Hello everyone – I hope you’re still with me. Chalk up the lack of posts to the craziness of excursion week, poor internet connections wherever we stayed, and 6 whirlwind days back in Istanbul into which much was crammed. Posts about these things are forthcoming. Stay tuned!

P.S. we’re in MOROCCO now!! We just arrived to Fes tonight, start class tomorrow, and move in with our host families on Wedneday!
