    Morocco reflections - ticked that list

    May 30, 2018 in Portugal ⋅ 🌙 15 °C

    So we arrived home (in Portugal) after 10 (long) days in Morocco. It was an interesting trip to see how life outside of Australia operates.

    The Medina’s (markets) that have been around for 100’s of years haven’t changed - with open fruit/vege stalls, hand made goods (although these days they are mass produced imports - so sad) and butchers where they kill the chicken that you want - right in front of you 😫 with camel heads and hoofs to boot.

    Needless to say, that after 5 days in Morocco we all went vego.

    Disappointing to experience poor hospitality from locals in both Fes and Marakech just wanting to scam you for money at every turn😢.

    We did see some great things like Ouzod Falls and Chefchaouen - Blue City.

    For anyone wanting to visit Morocco - don’t stay in the Medina and book day trips before you arrive!

    Oh - and don’t brush your teeth with tap water - maybe a rookie error we learnt the hard way!
