The Kingdom of Morocco

While we were staying primarily in Marrakech, the 2nd largest city in Morocco; we spent much of our time shopping in the Djemaa el Fna, one of the busiest squares in Africa and the world for that matter...bustling with acrobats, story-tellers, monkeys, dancers, snake charmers, and musicians. By night food stalls open in the square turning it into a huge busy open-air restaurant. We also spent a day hiking through the Atlas mountains where we swam and saw multiple large waterfalls. Although the running water was absolutely freezing! And finally we made our way to the Sahara desert! After a LONG and extremely HOT trip though the mountains in a broken down van... that never actually made it all the way there haha. By the end of it our camels were waiting for us and we rode them off to our camp site in the desert for the night :)
