St John the Baptist School – Day 1 in Morocco

Feb 17, 2014


We arrived safe and sound in the morning. The flight was quick and there wasn’t too much turbulence considering the storms the night before!

We went straight to hotel Akabar, checked into our rooms and made our way to Marrakech Square. The weather was lovely and the smell of food and spices as we walked around the market was unbelievable.
We went to an Apothecary where we were taught all about lots of different spices for foods and remedies to help with anything from dry skin to stress relief, some of us even had a massage- this is the life!

We arrived back at the hotel for dinner at 9pm where we had soup, Moroccan chicken in spices with rice and veg, it was lovely!

After a 19 hour day, we were all shattered, but had a great first day. As soon as our heads hit the pillow we were sound asleep and looking forward to day two of our adventure!
