Photo Essay: Winter Break in Morocco (Part Two)

“I was on a quest, but I did not know exactly for what I was searching.  Europe is a beautiful and immense land, but the ancient, impressive monuments and stone buildings can seem unwelcoming in the dead cold of winter.  Looking at my options for the winter break, I began to understand what I was yearning for.  It had to be warm.  It had to be different.  It had to be a place where I could use my French.  Most importantly, it had to be truly worthwhile.  In the end, it had to be Morocco.”

Please join me as we look at some of my fondest memories from this alluring land through the photos I captured.
