It’s the little things
I haven’t posted in a bit, I was in Morocco, first Marrakech and then Tangier. I won’t be writing about them tonight, my time in Morocco was amazing, complex and draining. Appropriately, so was my 32 hour ferry ride from Tangier to Barcelona.
I’m in Barcelona tonight after spending a wonderful day here. Especially exciting for me was the discovery of an amazing cemetery in Mountjuic. If you’ve been following this blog for a time you likely know I love photographing cemeteries and this was a spectacular one.
It’s week 8 of my 8 weeks in Europe and Africa and I’m getting a bit threadbare. On any long trip you develop a craving for the familiar, little things you desire and have become accustomed to in your day-to-day life.
I always get really specific food cravings when I travel and roast beef and gravy is the big one right now. I’ll be burrowing someone’s oven shortly after arriving stateside. I’m also oddly jonesing for Mexican food.
Other little things are nibbling at me like the lack of ice although Barcelona has been good on that front, I’m missing clean clothes, watching American football and most of all writing on something not dependent on thumb typing.
I know I’ll grow restless again quickly after getting stateside and I’ll be Mexico bound in late October, but for now, some nachos loaded with salsa as an appetizer and a roast beef dinner while watching a Steeler game sounds like heaven. I hope you’re in your version of heaven my friends and having a happy day. – Rev Kane
