Our trip around Africa took us to Morocco, where the kiddies had their hands tattooed with Henna (we looked at Morocco on the map, listened to Moroccan music all morning, danced, discussed and I used my eye-liner for the designs - hey! It's almost the same as a full trip to North Africa!)
We discovered that Moroccan Henna designs are more geometric than Indian ones. There wasn't much hand washing going on throughout the day, it has to be said and they enjoyed showing them to their friends at their dance and gym lessons.
My most favourite boy in the whole wide world is recovering from a nasty bout of tonsillitis. He has rested a lot this week, but joined in with sand and camel play :)
