Understanding Ramadan in Morocco
The sun dips down in the sky disappearing into the Atlantic Ocean. I seldom have watched a sunset so intently; waiting, waiting, waiting for that last little sliver to disappear. So much rested on that last sliver. My gaze moved from the sliver of sun to the restaurant around me. Families and couples sat at […]
Navigating a Flight Cancellation Situation

Musings of my Mind on a Morocco Bus Ride
I’m feeling a bit reflective. I haven’t felt that way for a while…or maybe it’s just been in my head and I haven’t let it out lately. I’m on a bus in Morocco traveling between Chefchaouen and Tangier…a 4 hour bus ride from hell. It’s hot; extremely hot, the air conditioning isn’t working, we […]
Transportation Adventures in Morocco
View Morocco Photography For the last week in addition to my 50 lbs of luggage, I’ve been toting around eye drops, lip balm, and alcohol – welcome to Morocco. It’s dry here…the orange ground begging for water, the sun burning brightly every day. My eyes are thirsting for liquid as are my lips and my […]
