A few hang-ups

All right, we made it through week two, but we did have some hang-ups. Bryce got sick going into the first weekend in Morocco, then our beloved teacher fell ill as well, with Kevin to follow.

We had a short class Friday because of Liljana being under the weather. We made it through our first exam, and overall everybody did well, I think.  Bravo on Kevin for scoring the highest in the class.

After week two I think that we are officially back on the horse as far as Arabic is concerned.  Wednesday we took a scenic tour around Meknes via horse-drawn carriage.  Very nice.  We then ended the week going to Volubilis and the city of Moulay Idriss.  So much history and such beautiful scenery.
