Anyone remember the old Steve Martin/John Candy movie “Planes, Trains And Automobiles?” we did all 3 in Morocco and experienced none of the circumstances that took place in that movie. That said, no one should ever complain about the way Phoenix drivers navigate the roadways. Morrocan taxi drivers will make Phoenix drivers look mild. Living dangerously behind the wheel would be an understatement.
Thankfully we made it back to Paris even though our flight out of Rabat SW delayed nearly an hour. It was a relatively short flight, and we were able to grab a light snack before turning in for the evening. So overall it was a pretty mellow travel day. I did, however, get to make brunch quesadillas for our hosts before we left for the airport. 5 days without any kind of Mexican food is not normal for me, so I was able to bless a host and satisfy a craving at the same time.
Tomorrow we have an early flight to Tel Aviv and then a 45 minute taxi ride to Jerusalem. Just the thought of being in Jerusalem puts a lump in my throat. To walk where Jesus walked will truly be an amazing adventure. This isn’t a full tour of the country, but at least I will get a taste.
Be blessed everyone
