Far from Home

Tonight my father, stepmother, sister and stepsister are all going out to dinner with two of my best friends from college. Tomorrow, they'll be hanging out on my campus, enjoying the April sunshine on Alumni Lawn. And instead of enjoying the return to my alma mater and the tradition of the half-marathon visit, I'm about 4,000 miles away hearing about the dinner they've planned from David while he decides what to wear to the delicious Italian place they've chosen. Most days it's lovely to be in Morocco and all the quirks of life here make up for those American things I lack...and then there are moments like these, which bring with them a twinge of jealousy.
