My Experience in Morocco

          As much as I love America, some things in Morocco are simply incomparable. To me, it's the little things that make me love being in Morocco so much more; things like freshly squeezed orange juice for less than 50 cents, the smell of burning leaves at 4am, and the open air markets on every street. I have to say though, nothing beats spending hours on the beach playing cards with cousins and eating ice cream. The 5 weeks we spent there flew by, and before we knew it, we had to come back and get into our daily routine of doing homework and watching TV, but I can't complain because any time spent on vacation is better than no vacation at all. The best part was that we got to sit in first class on our flight back from Morocco. We were really spoiled and felt like royalty. We unfortunately didn't get to stop by the Big Apple this year, but there'll always be more opportunities to travel.
          One of the things that Morocco is very known for is its food. Since the majority of our trip was during Ramadan, we had huge meals at night. These meals consisted of two courses, the ftour which is eaten right when the maghrib prayer is sounded to break the fast, and the isha course, which is typically eaten after the isha prayer. For the ftour, little foods such as Moroccan pancakes, hrira (traditional soup), spring rolls, dates, eggs, etc. are served. For the isha meal, big tajines and similar foods are served. The best part of Ramadan is probably all the great food, so try not to drool over the pictures ;)
