My month on the road continues in Morocco. It's my first time visiting Africa. My friends made me feel safe being somewhere with a reputation of being unsafe for western women! The boat docked in Casablanca. The movie Casablanca honestly doesn't do Morocco justice considering the point of the movie is escaping. Stay awhile.
If you love photography the way I do please head to Marrakech. This is a city with seemingly no traffic laws and thousands of vendors. The main square and side streets are jammed with food stalls. In the United States we have nothing that feels the way this place does. People are everywhere and things are moving faster then in my hometown of New York City. With all the colors, sounds, and smells it's hard to know where to look first.
The main square (Jemma el-Fnaa) features row upon row of open barbecues. We tried everything from couscous, almond desserts, to the local teas. There we were eating chicken on a stick in Morocco with at least two thousand other people. That is the most memorable night of my trip so far. At night the lights come on in the square and you can explore until the early hours of the morning. You never know where life will take you and I hope it takes you to Marrakech, Morocco!
