And Now the Test

MOROCCO | Sun, 13 Jul 2014 | By kakimono | Views [252]

We'll Prove it with Reference to our Last Seminar

MOROCCO | Mon, 23 Jun 2014 | By kakimono | Views [372]

MOROCCO | Fri, 13 Jun 2014 | By kakimono | Views [398]

The shower is the first thing that I look at and think “I need to put up with this for seven weeks?” Take a typical half-bath, maybe a little wider than normal and with a decent window sill. Shrink the sink so that you can move it into ... Read more >

School then Work and then Life

MOROCCO | Thu, 12 Jun 2014 | By kakimono | Views [300]

During breakfast Monday morning, someone made the comment that she was excited for classes to start. By the end of the day, I certainly agreed. My host family and Rabat were both so unfamiliar, I wanted something that I could understand again. And ... Read more >
