Morocco

There’s been an dearth of posts recently because I went to Morocco with some friends for a short vacation.  I saw the Medina of Fez (a UNESCO site),  Medina of Marrekesh (also a UNESCO site), the super large public square of Jemaa el-Fna also in Marrakesh, the Sahara Desert, the Dades and Todra/Todgha Gorges, the Ouzud Waterfalls and the Hassan II Mosque.  It should be noted that many of the mosques restrict non-Muslims from entering.

Overall despite getting food poisoning in the latter half of the trip, it was interesting.  Ten days is too much time for what we did.  Although we did go at a somewhat leisure place, we probably could have planned better and also gone up the coast to Tangiers/Rabat as well.  It’s amazing to see the change in scenery from lush green vegetation to barren dessert while driving with pockets of green along the rivers.  The towns that pop up depend on that water.  As one Airbnb host put it:  “no water, no life.”

This is my favorite picture from the trip…
