... this said, I think that feeling of guilt just makes me realize how extremely fortunate I am to not have to struggle like many of the people I had seen in Marrakech. It also inspires me to live this life I was given to the very fullest.
It was also extremely interesting to see and live in a completely different culture for three days. Our Riad was absolutely gorgeous. Tapestries hung from the walls, a large tree stood in the center of the main courtyard, and ...
