Shots and Things

Thursday, March 12, 2009
Green Bay, Wisconsin, United States
Today I got my shots for Hep A and typhoid. Nothing is required to enter Morocco, but these were recommended. My tetanus was updated last year when I went to China. My left arm is pretty sore (from the typhoid shot), and the nurse said it probably would be for a day or two.

I'm trying to get a lot of things done at work, so I'm not running around before I leave . I'm also getting over my cold. I want to be super healthy when we are there, because I know the experience is going to be physically and mentally exhausting. I know I can't run myself ragged, because it's not going to help myself or the rest of the team once in Morocco.

My friend Mary shared a link with me to try mango languages, and luckily, French is one of them. So I've been going through the lessons as much as I can. I don't expect to be fluent in French, but I do want to know some key phrases, and I figure this would be easier than trying to learn Arabic. At this point I know we will be staying in 7 cities: Casablanca, Marrakech, Rabat, Tangier, Meknes, Fes, Kenitra, and how long we will be in each city. But none of us know who we will be staying with or what we will be doing day-to-day. So....that will be an adventure in itself! :)

That's all for now!
Au revoir!

Mango Languages
My name is Robert and I work at Mango Languages. I was recently doing a search on Mango and discovered that you had mentioned Mango in your blog. Glad to here you have found Mango useful. I did want to make you aware we have shifted our focus to the public library market and will be removing the free lessons from our site soon. Mango's free lessons are available on hundreds of participating Library websites across the nation. If your library does not have Mango request them to get it. Thank you again for using Mango Languages and please pass any good experience on to your friends! Enjoy your trip!
