Exploring Morocco

Having settled into our home city of Meknes over the past week and a half, we were ready to explore other important places in Morocco. We started with the amazing city of Fes (Fez) and proceeded to the site of the ancient Roman city of Volubilis (Arabic: Walili). We then returned to Meknes for a guided walk through the old city. Here, in reverse order, are images of our first foray beyond Meknes and back – ending with a wonderful group experience in the scarf market of old Fes, where we each got headgear for our upcoming trip to the Sahara by camel (more on that later). Special thanks to Sam Jones, whose wonderful photos animate our memories of places seen, evoking even the smells and the textures of this most excellent adventure.

    Hi SSTers — Love the ancient buildings and ruins you get to see. The scarves looked like they kept you all entertained for a long time — look pretty cool in them too. Julie, you are stunning in yours! Thanks Sam Jones for sharing the pictures of your experiences with us.
    Hope all of you stay healthy, happy and safe. Lots of love from the Kings (suzanne’s parents)

    Hello SSTers; what a lovely place!. The scarves are also quite wonderful and will help in the desert! Stuart, Nate and Stacey are in Rabat leaving for Marrakech tomorrow. They are there for Stacey’s friends wedding. Hope they can see you! Julie–what a great picture. Julia Gautsche
