Remember I mentioned about my internet service on my trip being inconsistent? Well, that turned out to be an understatement! I'm finally back online, so we can continue the "Where in the World is Erin" challenge, since we still don't have a winner. I'll give extra credit to those who guessed that I was in Morocco, since I did stop in Morocco, before I started the challenge. For anyone who has seen the movie Casablanca, I found it interesting that the movie was really filmed in Florida & that in the real Casablanca they can't have bars so they have a Rick's Cafe (see photo). I also learned that The Clash song "Rock the Kasbah" was about the real earthquake in Agadir, Morocco in 1960 that almost totally destroyed the old city & resulted in the loss of 15,000 lives.
OK, back to where I am:
I'll give you a bunch of clues, since I've been neglecting you.
There are volcanoes where I am & they use the heat from the volcanoes to cook.
A semi-precious stone called Olivina is popular to make jewelry.
Fishing is a major source of income & the beaches are beautiful.
