Hisham very happy
Random pictures/

First fez pictures are of my husbands oldest brother his name is Hisham. Hisham has severe autism and is blind. My daughter has a baby Pretty Pony that sneezes and says lines like thank you for taking care of me. and thank you for wiping my nose. Hisham picked up the pony and tried to strangle it and kept banging the ponies head on the table. It was very funny. My fatherr-in-law told us that while we were away Hisham played with the pony. He called it mu mu (baby) and loved it. When we came back he didnt want anyone to take it from him. If you do take it from him he gets mad and throws it. Hisham is very funny! I think we willhave to get Asiyah another pony, this one is Hishams mumu.

Visit to my Husbands cousin Souad who got married and had a baby since the last time I saw her. We are on the roof of her home.

There are tons and tons of cafes in Morocco and they are all filled with men. This seems to be what they do, they sit in the cafe all day long!!!!!!! watch the women go by, socialize, and drink tea. Good Woman DO NOT go into the cafes.

Interesting Notes: I have seen at least 6 accidents were pedestrians have been hit by cars. Driving here is crazy. There are very few traffic light and all the cars are dented. I did drive in Jadida. People just cross the road and run out into the road. Even woman with kids its insane! One accident a woman was screaming cuz a car hit her small child.

I have also seen quite a few brawls, lol. sometimes its like being in one of those old cowboy movies where there are salon brawls and people go flying out the window, only Morrocan style.

more of my 2 cents
omg the traffic ! my husband cant go there he crosses the street like an idiot even with the kids i have to hold my chest so my heart doesnt beat out of it...... nope my kids r staying with me in a place like that. i will carry a yellow flag to wave around when i want to cross the street ..... do the cars have break lights do people take drivers ed there? i seriously see the benefit of drivers ed now

Muminah, they will try to take your man too. My husband said he was in a taxi and the taxi driver picked up a hooker, (husband was smart to use that word) she told the taxi driver I am not married if anyone is interested...the driver told my husband shes not married...my husband told him he was married. They think they are cute I have to learn to say in Arabic. Buy your funky ass some deodorant before you try to flirt okaaaay! ROtfl very few wear deodorant!
