MOROCCO

Last weekend I went to Morocco and it was one of the coolest experiences I’ve ever had in my life.  A few highlights:

  1. Frantically running through the bus station in Sevilla while holding my suitcase like a baby, (cause ain’t nobody got time to pick it up and put it down after every staircase) in order to make it to our meet point on time.
  2. The R&B throwback mixtape that was playing on our tour bus when we got on… and continued to play for almost the entire weekend.
  3. Staying in a hotel instead of a hostel for the first time since I’ve come to Spain.  Hotels, man.  That stuff is luxurious.
  4. Our walking tour guide in Chefchaouen, Abdu al Salaam, whose passion and intensity was as visible as his finger pointing and unbreakable eye contact.
  5. Eating freshly baked bread that is so hot that you almost burn your fingers, but you don’t care because it’s deliciously crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside.
  6. Finding the only other auxiliar within our tour group and becoming fast friends.
  7. Asilah.  This coastal city with its white-walled skyline, waves rolling to shore, and the linens and textiles flanking inner city walls.
  8. Moroccan tea.
  9. Finding the courage to barter for the best price but only because Natalie pops up behind the salesman and mouths the next number I should offer. (Yeah! I can do this!)
  10. Being by the sea because oceans and lakes remind me of home and my Home.

And now for a visual summary:
