Not sure where to begin. I spent a few weeks in Morocco, Africa back in December 2012-January 2013. On my 3rd day there I caught an infection which later grew into bronchitis. I was in a lot of pain and there were days when I had no energy to even hold 1 of my smallest cameras. Thankfully antibiotics did the work (eventually, when I was able to visit a hospital to see what’s happening) and I am fully recovered now.

It was definitely an experience of a lifetime!

During the day it’s pretty warm there with about 16-21C,but the temperature would get down to about +4C at night and in some areas I’ve had to experience -5C while having no heat. Electricity and hot water seems like an expensive commodity in rural areas and not many people have constant access to it. Luckily, winter does not last long and during the summer the temperature is extremely hot 24/7.  Although I can’t really comment on summer food, in the winter, meats such as chicken,beef and lamb are very popular,along with tajine, rice,olives,vegetable soup,couscous and bread. Areas near the ocean tend to consume more seafood.  I loved the lamb kabobs! I am not sure why,but it doesn’t have that pungent taste and smell. It’s extremely delicious! Mint tea and coffee are very popular drinks and unlike coffee shops in other countries, they are served in very tiny cups. Prices for a cup of coffee or tea ranges from about 0.30 cents to a more common ~$1-1.30 ,even for locals. Definitely not cheap.

As in some other countries, photography is very difficult as nobody in general likes to have their photo taken. Women and girls usually quickly cover their face as soon as they even see a camera.

I have here almost all the pictures I was able to take.  There’s a bit more information provided under certain images with more explanation.

Goat climbing argan trees MoroccoGoats on a Argan tree. Believe it or not it’s a popular thing to see in Morocco.  Goats climb the tree in search of the seeds. Wait,there’s more!

Some locals collect the droppings and press Argan oil from them,which is either consumed internally or used as external medicine
