I've fallen behind on blogging, I know. Moving to a new country and starting a new job is really... time consuming. It's wonderful and frustrating, exciting and challenging. I love Morocco so far, but it sure is taking time to settle in— I had forgotten what it feels like to be new to a place. I seem to have gotten into some kind of rhythm with my students, I've got an art store, some favourite hanouts for veggies, and I have a nut guy. This man is truly a master at roasting nuts.
So the big news of late is that I'm participating in the 16th Rendez-vous du Carnet de Voyage in Clermont-Ferrand this weekend! It's a wonderful feeling to be one of the carnettistes at the event, showing my Anatolian and Nepali sketches among some of the finest travel books I've seen. Photos will soon follow, but first, my hotel has a bathtub. It has been a long, long time since I've had a tub available to me, and I plan to take full advantage of it.
Here's the trailer for the Rendez-vous— enjoy!
