Nice info for our foreign brothers. Language is definitely a barrier when we travel abroad. Sign languages just don't do.

Hi Travelphilippines! I’m profiting from the holiday here to anticipate the weekly visit… ;)
I'm learning a lot here, after seeing some beautiful spots...
Thanks for your comment on Blogtrotter, which is still around Marrakesh. Hope you enjoy and have a great weekend!
