Guelmim is the Camel Capital of Morocco so I had to go to a camel market. Mohamed told me not to get too close though. The last picture is of Camel Tagine which is a dish common to Moroccans. No it did not taste like chicken, more like a cross between beef and deer. It was really good though.
Hanging Out with Great People
Mohamed just opened his home to us and that was so cool. We met his colleagues and friends. I teased Mohamed and called him "The Mayor" because he seemed to know everyone. My experience in Morocco was great because Mohamed went the extra mile and wanted Chester and I to feel at home and welcomed in Morocco. He is such a great ambassador for his country and became a good friend in the process.
Morocco Is Fascinating
At the end of the day, Morocco is just like any other country I have visited. They are proud of where they live and are eager to share all the great things there country possesses. I found things familiar and unfamiliar which is what makes travel so special. I wish I would have been given more time to explore the country and experience the different cities and cultural sites but this trip was more about bridges cultures than sightseeing. While it may sound hyperbolic, I experienced a once in a lifetime event that I will share with others as long as I am alive. Morocco is a place I will visit again and meet up with those same people once again and rekindle those relationships. In the meantime, I will continue to stay in contact with my new friends and continue to learn.
