About time I checked in huh!
We got here fine – actually, better than fine.
We had a ROYAL welcome!!! Crossed the border, piled 14 of us into three taxis for an hour and half drive, and along the way, there were Moroccan flags everywhere and police at basically EVERY intersection.
We started seeing cars with all these flashing lights going the other way, and people were lined up on the streets, and our driver explained that the King was driving through – yep, we saw the King of Morocco on our first day in the country. Pretty happy haha.
Spent a couple days getting our bearings, and we’ve started volunteering at the local orphanage. It’s fair intense being around all these little babies who don’t have anyone, and I’ve found that it’s more heart wrenching than uplifting being in that environment.
Today in particular, I’m feeling weighed down and just heavy.
Maybe I’m still settling in, maybe it’s seeing so many children who are alone in the world, maybe it’s hormones or even homesickness, but today I’m a little flat.
Miss you guys.
