Today I got married! Kinda, Sorta, Not really. But it was still fun. In probably the best and most cultural experience in Morocco so far group of PCTs hiked two hours outside of Sefrou to a small Berber village when on the way, passing a single house in the middle of nowhere, a young girls runs down to greet us with figs and invites us up. Low and behold when we get to the house there is a wedding party happening. Colored rugs and pillows are lying in the shade with fifty smiling faces waiting to greet us. So, long story short, to demonstrate their customs I got make married to another PCT named Sarah. I wore a Jellaba and mini turban and sat next to Sarah while everyone danced in a harmonious cacophony around us and when it was done, all the PCTs got a henna dot on our palm. I have to say, these were some of the nicest people in the world, and we barely had a word in common! So it really was a wonderful experience.
