A Day in the Life

Whoa - two in one day! Jackpot! :-) I've been meaning to do a post like this for a while now, and since my friend Debra recently came to visit, I now have the necessary photos to show you what an average day in my life is like. These weren't actually all taken on the same day, but you get the idea...
I make breakfast in my small but awesome kitchen...
I go to the city (about two hours by taxi) to get groceries for the week...

I talk to my host aunt about our plans for the Women's Association...

I walk through the alleyways of the crumbling old medina to get to the clinic, school, or wherever else I might be going since women aren't permitted on the main road...

In the evening, I go outside and socialize with the women and play with little Fatima...

And then I unwind with my cat, Salvador.

The end!

I like your analysis of this, and wouldn't have thought about that. When I think about it though, talking to a lot of men (or "dating around") isn't always viewed here nicely either, although it always depends on who you are talking to. I know my mom judged me for it, baesd on comments I heard from my sister, and you still see it on tv. Very interesting though...

And glad you are doing well and enjoying yourself :) Stop being sick though! Heal up. No exotic illnesses for you.

I meant to post the previous comment to your previous post, but here's the second one!

Mel is wearing a skirt!!!! WHOA!? So skin tight jeans aren't accepted there :-P And that grocery store looks like it would be tons of fun to walk around and just look at absolutely everything in there. I would love it. And your place looks cozy and warm, and like it is perfect :) You always have to have that place of solace you can come back to and unwind. I'm in search of something similar myself haha (and when you come back you are more than welcome to join me there!)
