Changing of the Guard
Buckingham Palace

So sorry this is really late in the series, but here it goes anyways. We arrived at midnight and slept in the airport till 6 am. We almost missed our shuttle bus back into London, but caught him just as he was backing up! We found our new host Ana who agreed to let us stay with her for two nights. Also staying with her was another couch surfer named Jean-Phillip. He is from Paris and looking to work and learn English. After a quick breakfast we headed out to Buckingham Palace to see the changing of the guards. We caught the tail end of it and then headed to an open food market to try different foods. We walked along the river towards tower bridge when we realized one of our metro passes was missing. We backtracked and searched but with no luck. So we bought another pass and took the "tube" to London's parliament building and to see Big Ben! We also took pictures of West Minister Abby before heading back to Ana's for the night.
Our last day in London was spent walking through Soho, and checking out London Tower and Tower bridge (ie. London bridge). London Tower was super expensive so we just enjoyed the view, but took lots of pictures of Tower bridge. Ana brought us to a friends house warming party that night. It was a Portuguese/African house warming party, which = A lot of FUN!!!! While we were waiting for the food to be barbecued, Dana and I went back to Tower bridge to take night shots. It took us a lot longer to get there and back, so the party was twice was big when we got back. It was so much dancing, and eating good food. We finally left at 2 am seing as how we still needed to pack and get up at 8am. The party was still going strong when we left.

We caught a bus in the morning back to Agadir. They tried to check our baggage and charge us for it, but we had played that game already. We held onto it with plenty of room for our feet! A family got on with their son being sick. He was throwing up the whole 4 and half hours, we moved back a row as nonchalantly as possible. We arrived in a town called Inzegane, which is a twenty minute bus ride from Agadir. Again we had to wait for our host to come meet us. A store owner called for us and also gave us a place to sit and ordered us some tea. Hisham came shortly after and we headed to his place. We headed into Agadir to look around, walked through the zoo, and down by the marina and the beach before heading back and relaxing. Then next day we went walking through the souk (the market), Dana got a few gifts. Hisham's family lives in the four floors of their house, but they only have the hole in the ground for a toilet. So for us it is a little awkward trying to use them! And we will leave it at that!
We took a bus ride to a beach further away where a lot of people go surfing. We just hung out by the beach and enjoyed the sun for a few hours. When we walked to the bus station to leave Morocco, I felt like there was a parade going on, and we were the main float. Everyone stares in Morocco and it just feels so weird to be the one being stared at. When walking to the airport from the bus stop, some kids stopped us to interveiw us about why we came to Morocco for their English class. We both were very happy to finally get on the plane to fly back to London.
