Man on the Continent
Paris was beautiful. Barcelona was
cool but hot and crowded. Granada was also crowded but very scenic.
Then we descended into hell. Hell is Morocco, or as I imagine, any
place on the African continent. We should have known better after
hearing Jeff Chazire's kidnapping story from Fes, but we didn't
listen and ended up in that same godforsaken city. To make a long
story short, we felt lucky to escape with our lives and our
lightened pocketbooks. A piece of advice to anyone who cares to read
this column - please, for the love of God and all of humanity, don't
ever, ever, go to Morocco. I'm serious!
When we got back to civilization we
spent several days in Lisbon, a great, lively city with very friendly
folks. We then wrapped things up with several days on the beach in
southern Portugal. We just recently got to Germany which will be
discussed in my next submission.
