Waiting like a kid and missing my train at the Marrakesh station

After eating that wonderful ice cream, I went back into the station. I was so excited to be able to do this. Since I was a kid, I told my father that I will do a long train travel in Africa. Here I am as an adult, about to do what I claimed I would more than a decade ago. Hopefully in the future, I will do more than one country on a train! You get to see more of the countryside than being on flight.

I was excited to see Morocco by train. Starting off at Marrakesh with a stop in Casablanca, this train journey will end up in Tangier. Tangier is almost across the sea from Spain. It’s on the very tip of northwest morocco. So, I was almost seeing the whole country on train. My face had the brightest smile. You can’t say dreams don’t come true. For at that moment, I was living in one.

Per-ordered  my train tickets from a local agency. It was a little more expensive buying them in person. In Morocco, you can’t buy train tickets online with a foreign card. If you are using a foreign card, you have to buy everything in person. That’s why I used a local agency, they assure to buy your tickets ahead of time. Most of the extra money went to a good cause. The agency helps with local troubled youth, so I wasn’t mad.

Waiting to board the train was dreadful. It’s like a kid waiting in line to go to Disneyland. Every ten minutes, I would look at my watch. Wondering when I will board. With very little public WiFi spots, I had to find something to pass my time. Pulled out a book to read; however, I put it back in fear of losing track of time. It was one of those moments, where you were frustrated going back and fourth on what to do.

Of course, that’s what happened even without reading my book. I missed calculated the time difference and apparently my phone did too. I missed my train and had to take another one, two hours later. Which means more waiting like that kid in line at the Disneyland entrance. This was just the start to something more complicated. However, that didn’t stop me from having a good time.

  1. I love riding on trains. I’m glad you got to do this and in another country.

    I’m sorry for your losses. I know that not everyone who has supposedly died from the virus really had the virus to blame as the reporting is set up to label all as caused by the virus, even if really other health challenges were the cause of death. I’ve read about someone going to the doctor for a broken arm and it labeled the virus on the paperwork as it brings funds to the hospital. Whatever the cause, it is always hard to lose someone. Sending on love and support.

    • yes, train rides are awesome! i hope to do more in the future.
      .yeah, my uncle died because he was in the hostipal before this happened. it hard to say what exactly happened. i’m sure if it was directly or indirectly. stay safe katelon. i wish you health and power to keep fighting this

      • I’m doing fine. This was all dark created..lots of propaganda, secret government turf wars, biological weapons. We’ve shut much of it down in our work but it will take the disclosure event to shut it down and bring the truth.

  2. Apology not necessary. The loss of a loved one is a roller coaster, muchless during a national pandemic is extremely overwhelming.
    Take care of YOU. That’s my motto.
    My condolences to you and your family. Virtual hugs!

  3. Very sorry to read that you are so heavily affected in this trying time. Look after yourself and be well.

    I’m excited to see how your story in Morocco becomes further complicated.
