Marrakech, Morocco.

The entire first day we spent in Morocco, these words repeatedly ran through my head: this is the craziest place I have ever been. Hearing the call to prayer five times a day over the speakers of mosque minarets, receiving constant attention from shopkeepers trying to sell things, experiencing the busy square of Marrakech (that never sleeps but always contains snakes, monkeys, musicians, and endless food vendors), and exploring the winding streets that cannot be navigated via map. It is the most chaotic of places, but we have grown to love Morocco in the short time we have been here, in the same way we do every other country that we have been to. We are given a glimpse into a people and a culture different from our own, reminding us again that there is a common humanity we all share, and yet the dissimilarities are what makes this world a beautiful place to explore.
