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.
