Meticulous Preparation

Besides mapping out the previously posted rough itinerary for my upcoming (tomorrow) trip around the Southern half of Morocco, I have taken the following measures to ensure a smooth journey:

  1. Downloaded the second season of Breaking Bad to watch tonight so I wouldn't go out and spend all my trip money on alcohol.
  2. Took a bag of clothes to the lady who washes them for me. I need the pair of jeans I wore most of last week.
  3. Skimmed my roommate's Lonely Planet book on Morocco. Also Spain, because I love Spain.
  4. Figured out a way to tell my maid (who speaks no English or French) that we'd be gone for a little while.
  5. Thought long and hard today at work about what I would throw into my backpack to keep me going for three weeks.
  6. Looked at train schedules. Well... looking, present tense.

Things my roommate (who is "just going to follow you, dude") is going to wish I had done:
  1. Booked hotel rooms
  2. Booked transportation
  3. Research, of any kind

This is going to be awesome.
