Why Morocco?

I've been to Morocco and now I'm home.

When I told people we were going to Morocco, the most common response was "why?" Good question. It wasn't on my list or even really on my radar, but last July I got a text from my friend Muriel that started, "wanna do something wild and crazy....?" She was going to Morocco in January with a group. There was room in the group. Would we want to come along? It was such an unexpected idea we had to think about it, and watch some videos and read some books and check the savings account and look at each other and say "Morocco? Really?" More than once. And before we knew it it instead of "why would we go to Morocco?" We were saying "Why would we not go?" And miss this?

Or this?

Alas, by the time we'd decided, Muriel's group was at capacity, so we enlisted our friends, Sue and Jerry and we all signed on for the next trip, and last month we embarked on a grand, often thrilling, always beautiful Moroccan adventure. We got home a week ago and I'm still making my way through hundreds of photos and I plan to share some in the coming weeks. Here are a few to whet your appetite, if you have a taste for history and exotic beauty and color and amazing food.

And more to come...

  1. Can't wait to see all of your pictures.... and whatever artwork will bubble up in your fertile brain from the exposure to all of this beauty! Thanks so much for sharing!

  2. Gorgeous! I'd be interested to know what group/company you travelled with.

  3. Oh yes! Morocco is such a marvelous place! A good friend taught English there for a couple years and I fell in love with it then. Your photos are wonderful! Good choice!
