It's been a crazy last few days in Rabat: I saw Alicia Keys in concert (THIS GIRL IS ON FIRE), thanks to Mawazine (a music festival sponsored by the Moroccan government). We had a little get together at AMIDEAST for our host families and close friends. I received henna on my hands and feet. (My nails are now dyed redish brown). Goodbyes, gift buying, packing and reflecting have filled my remaining hours.
I know every exchange student says it, but this year went by so fast. It's easy to ask where the time went. But I know where it went. It went to hammam trips, medina wanderings, long afternoons in cafes, chopping vegetables, learning Darija, and countless other adventures. Now that my time in Morocco is almost gone, I am so grateful for everything I have experienced this year. I will miss Morocco wholeheartedly.
To my friends & family in Morocco--shukran bzaf. Kanbrikum bzaf u williftkum. Hazeena, hate xsni n-mshi. Walakin, fr7na hate jit l mghrib. Mashi ma-salama, ghir n-shoufkum mn bad, inchallah. Bisous mn l ham9a bint amerikania!
Goodbye to the best year of my life (so far)!
