Morocco In Pictures

Here's a small sample of the hundreds of pictures I took in Morocco. They're in chronological order and should form a fairly continuous photojournal of the trip.

-----


Sunrise from a plane is way cool



Beach at Essaouira



Ryan!


the room in Nalika's house where we stayed


probably my favorite thing I ate in Morocco: tajine kefta. G beef, eggs, and vegetables in a simmering hot clay pot. mmmmm.


The Djemma el-Fna, main square of Marrakech


Koutoubia mosque at dusk


The medina of Marrakech...



...where they sell pretty much anything...


...and I mean ANYTHING.


Spices for sale in the souqs


Just a fraction of the chaos of the Djemma-el-Fna at night



at the base of Toubkal: Imlil


The beginning of the climb



Crossing through the floodplain before Aroumd


Taking a few minutes off and jumping into this awesome waterfall



a great break for sore toes


interesting cooling method



The Refuge. Not of the Newsies variety, sadly.


whatchoo lookin at foo



Sunrise between the peaks




Light and shadow on the mountainside
Yeah, we climbed that. It's pretty much vertical.



Finally at the summit



Looking out over the Atlas



4,167m isn't enough for Ryan... he has to grab that extra five


Smug at the summit



Higher! Higher!



One does not simply walk into Mordor.



I think that might be the Sahara, way off in the distance


A casualty of the descent. Note the makeshift tourniquet/bandage, carefully constructed from tissues and a hair tie.



Delicious delicious breakfast. Every day.



Avocado milkshake... who DOES that



Our room in our Fez guesthouse



Hassan's carpet shop



Walls of Fez. That guy there is actually Aladdin.



The evil salad. Little did we know.

The blue walls of Chefchaouen


Last view of Morocco... hello Spain!
