Marrakech: and a New Year's eve tale

We headed out on horseback 

to a destination hidden but nearby

where friends -- Canadian, American, Egyptian, Moroccan and Czech -- were gathering


for a New Year's eve feast

 and much drinking of cheap pink wine and cheaper pink champagne. 

 At midnight we made toasts in too many languages to remember.  In short, it was perfect.  

Here's wishing you a 2010 filled with adventure, color, and love. (Because really, the rest is not so important when you think about it.)
