“Morocco as it is is a very fine place spoiled by civilization.”

What are some of the places on your travel bucket list?
I definitely want to visit a few countries in the Middle East as well as Africa. Some of my good friends from grad school came from Israel, Morocco, and Lebanon. I’m particularly interested in planning a trip to Morocco some time, especially after seeing this photoshoot. It would be fascinating to see examples of the Berber, Arabian, and European influences in this North African country. The pictures in this Marrakesh setting remind me a little bit of Fatephur Sikri in India. I was completely captivated by the pink terra cotta walls and ornate mirrored and tiled decor in this ancient palace. I bet the 12th century Rabat Kasbah fort would be a wonder to walk through. It would be so cool as well to take a walk in the evening through ancient souks filled with traditional ceramics and jewelry. I suppose this is another sign that I adore walking through, touching, and seeing examples of ancient civilizations and history in my travels. I don’t know if Morocco is quite spoiled by the modern trappings of civilization but I’d love to see and experience it for myself some day!
Have a lovely week!
