Greetings from Morocco, my first country in Africa!
My friend Mary (a veteran of our amazing trip to Rio in 2011) and I are doing a somewhat whirlwind tour of Morocco (four cities in five days) followed by a less intense but no less busy five days in Istanbul. I may just post everything I’ve written when I return home as a) it is much harder to insert photos via iPhone and b) I want to try to improve my travel writing skills so that these posts read more like thoughtful memoirs than an hour-by-hour recounting of our experiences.
When I do end up posting, you can look forward to tales of Marrakech, Rabat, Fez, Casablanca, and Istanbul, with as many details as I can provide about what we are seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting, and doing in these places that feel more foreign (in a wonderful, exciting way) than any I’ve visited in a long time.
In the meantime, you can see pictures and video from the trip on our respective Instagram feeds; mine is @kwergs.
